Wellness programming at the Academy is designed to help our students make healthy and intelligent choices regarding nutrition, exercise and lifestyle. Through coursework, individualized fitness planning and goal setting, students are afforded the opportunity to expand their knowledge of kinesiology and fitness programming. Within the Wellness department, the academic elective courses are geared toward those interested in a medical or health science career.
Wellness is an integral part of the curriculum at the Academy and all of our new students are required to take our introductory Wellness course. In our core Wellness course, students learn about the basics of aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, individual fitness programming, stress management, nutrition, human sexuality and disease prevention. Students interested in anatomy, kinesiology and a career in the health sciences are afforded the opportunity to take our academic elective offerings including Kinesiology (10th grade year), Anatomy and Physiology (11th grade year), and Honors Sports Medicine (12th grade year). Together, these high level courses provide and in-depth analysis of human anatomy and movement, sports injuries and rehabilitation programming.
In addition to our classroom offerings students must participate in one sport or complete one health/fitness elective per year in order to meet graduation requirements. Our sports facilities are first class, from our collegiate-level athletic fields to our $15 million athletic center, which boasts a rock climbing facility and waveless competition swimming pool.
