Physical Education

Academy Hill's physical education curriculum emphasizes not only the body, but also teamwork and other skills surrounding athletic performance that are applicable to any field. Academy Hill students learn social skills and are held to high standards of sportsmanship. They learn to work as part of a team, persevere and achieve goals.

Our physical education curriculum is designed to provide our students with opportunities to develop individual competence and versatility in motor skill development and fitness. Locomotor skills, movement concepts, throwing and catching, and space awareness are skills that are developed through demonstration, repetition and practice. Students apply and practice the skills they have learned in cooperative games and team sports.
