Physical Education and Health

The Academy’s physical education and health departments provide each student with the opportunity to develop physically, spiritually, socially, and intellectually. Our program includes instruction in sports, fitness, and health related life skills. The physical education curriculum recognizes the wide range of abilities and interests of AHA’s students and seeks to provide flexibility in its offerings, while maintaining standards and requirements. The program framework is based on physical fitness, team building, creative games, individual and team sports, and lifetime activities. Angels have access to our fitness center, where they are invited to increase their muscular endurance and strength, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility.

We serve the diverse needs of our students in a positive atmosphere. Each person is encouraged to enjoy physical activity and pursue an active lifestyle. Our goal is to have students see health as an important way of life. AHA’s curriculum fosters the use of personal and interpersonal life skills that contribute to health and wellness. Students learn how to attain their goals and use their potential to better themselves, their families, and their communities. Angels receive important information to help them make health-related decisions in an informed and positive way.

Requirements: All students are required to take four years of the physical education sequence, and three quarters of Health.
