“Take care of your body as if you were going to live forever, and take care of your soul as if you were going to die tomorrow.’”

-Saint Augustine


 

The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19); thus, our physical education program addresses the whole child, from personal health to physical activity.

We strive to help the child:

 
 
  • Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical fitness

  • Know the benefits of physical activity

  • Take personal and social responsibility toward others in physically active settings

  • Learn the necessary tools and resources for participating in lifetime physical activities
