Physical Education


God grants us the intellect to know, to care for, and to protect the body that houses His image. For students, this is learned when schools promote and model lifetime wellness by teaching health concepts and physical fitness activities. As such, physical education needs to be an integral part of a holistic Catholic educational process.

Physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle need to be everyday priorities. Evidence-based research strongly supports improved student academic outcomes when health, P.E., and wellness strategies are utilized in the school setting. Each promotes the development of confidence, dignity, and respect for self and others. Within our Mission, we will reinforce Christian values that will promote lifelong health and physical and spiritual fitness.
