The SCH physical education program is designed to provide each boy with the opportunity to find success at his own level.
The SCH Lower School for Boys Physical Education Department believes that all of our boys should be exposed to a healthy lifestyle that encourages daily physical activity, healthy eating, and habits. Our comprehensive curriculum provides students the opportunity to develop body awareness, explore movement, discover cooperative games, improve sport-specific skills, and experience team sports. We value the team experience and the life skills one develops while being a team member. Through these activities, students learn how to have fun, to win and lose, to show good sportsmanship, and to develop discipline and responsibility. Our physical education program supports the development of a well-balanced individual by providing the opportunity to develop not only physically, but also socially, emotionally, and mentally.
At SCH Academy Lower School for Boys, the physical education program is centered around SHAPE America’s goal of “physical education is to develop physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity.” Skill development is a regular focus of the physical education curriculum. Students will continue to focus on skill development with activities in partnerships and in games with small groups that allow everyone to participate.
