Physical Education & Health

The Physical Education and Health Department offers a sequential educational program that focuses on the development of sustained physical fitness throughout their lifetime. Students improve their motor and cognitive skills to establish a healthy lifestyle while understanding how their bodies work. Our comprehensive curriculum provides students the opportunity to develop body awareness, explore movement, discover cooperative and recreational games, improve sport-specific skills, experience team sports, study/practice fitness based activities, and study the coaching and sport management industry.
