Health & Physical Education

Our health educator offers varied classes in the areas of health and physical education. However, we encourage and support our students in seeking opportunities aligned with their interests beyond our course offerings. We believe that seeking balance in wellness and movement are essential components of our everyday journey and truly value our students’ experiences. Hiking, kayaking, sailing, yoga, paddle boarding, or baseball, for example – individual pursuits, team sports participation, family journeying – can be documented as physical endeavors for credit. Students interested in accessing the Blue Hill YMCA may create customized learning plans as part of their weekly schedule, and in turn, receive a paid membership for their participation. Meditation is offered at our school, and while students receive health credit for their participation, we believe in the importance of quietude and time for deep introspection.

Students interested in playing on a local high school sports team would need to obtain permissions from that school’s athletic director.
