Physical Education

Christian middle school

Class 6

Middle school students use recess and physical education times to develop physical skills and social and spiritual maturity. Student strive to achieve their personal best while encouraging classmates toward the same goal. Physical education also inculcates the lifelong habits of appropriate care of the body, regularity in fitness, and character over competition.

Class 7

We believe that physical activity, exercise, and athletics contribute to our students’ development – not only physically, but also spiritually and relationally. Students in seventh (and eighth) grade join our after-school sports teams. We encourage all students to play on our teams, contributing in at least two sports per year. During the fall, we offer cross-country and soccer; in the winter, basketball and swimming; in the spring, lacrosse and track. Our sports program allows our students to grow as athletes in a team setting. In addition, when students elect different sports in all three seasons, they develop well-trained bodies that are not overtaxed and prone to injury. All of these benefits occur in the context of sportsmanship.
