The SCH physical education program is designed to provide each girl with the opportunity to find success at her own level.
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 Girls, 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.”
