The goal of the Physical Education Department is to make the individual student aware of the role that regular physical activity plays in the pursuit of lifelong health and well-being and to provide her with an opportunity for enjoyment, self-expression and communication.
- To give each student an opportunity to exercise and become physically fit to better perform her daily routine while encouraging a healthful use of leisure time.
- To provide a variety of lifetime and team activities so that each student may experience success and/or discover new interests in physical activity for the present and future.
- To enhance students’ social, communication and cooperation skills.
- To acquaint all students with basic First Aid and CPR.
To meet the graduation requirement of St. Joseph’s Academy and that of the state of Missouri, one full credit is required.
