As a member of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA), all VRCS 7th & 8th grade students now have the opportunity to participate in athletic programs with Oil City Junior High School.
While St. Patrick offers cheerleading and has our own basketball program for grades 4-6, many other sports are available for 7th & 8th graders through the PIAA co-op. In the past few years, our VRCS 7th & 8th grade students have participated in football, wrestling, track and field, and baseball. Additional sports available through the co-op include volleyball, softball, and cross country.
Students who attend private schools that do not participate in a PIAA program lose out on the benefits of these multiple sports, while receiving the same educational benefits of the private school.
Prior to securing this athletic benefit, we heard from parents who did not choose our school citing lack of athletics as one of the deciding factors in going to or staying in public school; this no longer must be the case.
