Wellness Curriculum

The mission of the physical education department at Philip’s Academy is to provide an environment full of physical activity while promoting and embodying the ideals of teamwork, sportsmanship, hard work and self-discipline. The physcial education program is designed to provide wholesome opportunities and experiences that will enable our students to develop physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. Participation in the PE teaches our students the importance of commitment, the satisfaction of selfless teamwork, the lessons learned in movement and physical activity. Lower School students focus on spatial skills and motor skills as they learn small range motions and activities that enhance and improve balance and coordination.

Philip’s Academy recognizes that success is not exclusively a function of winning and our student work toward team goals, conducting themselves with honor, integrity, and sportsmanship at all times.

Besides weekly Physical Education classes, lower school students are granted daily recess periods.  This affords them ample opportunity to gain exercise and express themselves physically.
