We believe that our bodies are a gift from God, making the development and preservation of that gift a sacred responsibility. This perspective gives purpose and direction to our Physical Culture program. After completing this program, students will possess the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors that will enable them to pursue lifelong physical fitness and wellness.
Our Physical Culture curriculum is multi-faceted, with the intention of providing a variety of contexts in which students can expand their movement vocabulary. Unlike the traditional sports model used by many schools, our program emphasizes lifetime activities, group initiatives, familiarity with fitness equipment and activity locations, and service to the community. Although competition can be positive, and athletic proficiency is admirable, we are seeking to develop a fitness-lifestyle vision for the long term.
