Physical Education & Health

At UPrep, we thrive at promoting lifelong wellness. Our PE program encompasses health literacy as well as physical literacy. When students leave our Middle School, they have a true understanding of how to keep themselves fit. Health literacy is about having a true understanding of living a healthy lifestyle and getting in shape—while having fun!" PE Teacher James Johnson

At UPrep, the goal of the Physical Education (P.E.) Program is to redefine educational excellence by supporting all students in developing their skills, knowledge, and character in a variety of contexts, regardless of their athletic abilities. Our students learn how to develop a foundation for lifelong wellness and build upon their physical literacy by exploring P.E. in all domains of learning: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. Students experience a diverse set of courses that support growth and challenge as they become physically and intellectually courageous and socially responsible.

In Middle School P.E., students explore a wide range of activities to create a foundation of understanding and skill development, deepen collaboration and belonging, and increase enjoyment in movement. Students gain confidence and competence to move in a variety of ways in both traditional and nontraditional activities.

Our Health Program fosters a culture of lifelong well-being by empowering students with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed and responsible health choices to thrive in any context. Our philosophy is rooted in the understanding that health is a holistic concept encompassing physical, emotional, social, and mental well-being. Middle School Health serves as a cornerstone in our commitment to cultivating a healthy and thriving community of students who are intellectually courageous, socially responsible citizens of the world.
