SPORTS AS A HOOK

Our students do their best when they lead healthy and active lifestyles. In response to the obesity crisis in public school youth, we offer this unique program to connect sports with various lessons on leadership, teamwork, resilience, discipline, health, fitness, community service, environmental education, and gender equality. By cultivating better physical health, our students also grow internally to develop a deeper awareness of themselves and how they fit within the world in which they live.
