Pacelli High School offers a wide variety of clubs and activities for all of our students to enjoy.
The bowling league meets every Tuesday after school at Skipps Bowling Center in Stevens Point. It starts shortly after the fall sports season ends and it ends in time for the beginning of spring sports. Each team is required to have at least four people. Students and faculty teams bowl three games each time. Mr. Gehrman keeps track of averages as well as wins and losses. At the end of the season, the top teams are presented with awards.

Destination Imagination is a non-profit organization that provides educational programs for students to learn and experience creativity, teamwork and problem solving. Destination Imagination is an educational program in which student teams solve open-ended challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. Teams are tested to think on their feet, work together and devise original solutions that satisfy the requirements of the challenges. Participants gain more than just basic knowledge and skills; they learn to unleash their imaginations and take unique approaches to problem solving. Pacelli is the current home to four DI teams, and each year Pacelli teams do very well in both the Regional Competitions and State and Global Competitions.

Students who excel at mathematics, not matter what class they are in, are encouraged to join the Math League. There are 3 different categories: Geometry, Algebra, and Advanced Mathematics. The ‘mathletes’ prepare by practicing different types of problems and going over new concepts. Students have the opportunity to compete in 3 different math league events, which take place at UWSP. At the competition, students take an examination which tests their knowledge on that category.
