Their gymnasium is often used for athletic events, both extracurricular and intramural. It is also used for various special activities, such as school dances. Their cafeteria is catered by Glen Fine Foods. The school's library includes a vast collection of books and multiple internet-enabled computers. VCI is equipped with two regulation tennis courts.

Annual Green Day[edit]

Green Day has become a proud, school-wide tradition at VCI. For 8 years and counting, VCI students and staff take time out of their busy schedules by helping out senior citizens in the Vankleek Hill community. They rake leaves and clean up lawns, front and back, to make room for all of that wonderful new spring growth.
