Applicants to the program must also possess strong academic commitment, and be positive contributors to the Resurrection community. Applicants must be working toward a provincial/ national/ international championship outside of high school sport. The PEAT program will focus on developing essential transferable skills including speed, agility, endurance, power, and flexibility.

During the course of the 2011-2012 school year, Resurrection's Reach for the Top team won the regional tournament for Waterloo, and therefore ended up attending the Provincial championships, where the team placed 13th in the Province. Also, a notable program Resurrection Catholic Secondary School has to offer is UCEP (University Cooperative Education Program). Where students in either grade 12 or 13 get to spend their first semester at the University of Waterloo, Wilfred Laurier or St. Jerome's University. This program is known as a specialized co-op and it supplies those students who excel with an outstanding experience. You are then able to gain a co-op position with a professor on any of these campuses. This gives you a unique experience and looks good on applications for College or University. The Waterloo Catholic Secondary School Board offers a program known as High Skills Major. In this program you will receive a number of certifications and will be able to attend many courses related to a specific career path such as health and wellness. You will also have to take certain courses in you upper years (grade 11 and 12) that relate to this career path, for example in health and wellness you would have to take some science courses. It is also a necessity to take co-op, and to receive a placement in the career of your choice. Once all these requirements are met, students who participated in the program will receive a designation on their diploma, which also looks great when applying to post-secondary school. It will also give you some advantages when at your post-secondary school.
