As a core belief that healthy and physically active children are much more likely to succeed in the classroom, Physical Education and interscholastic Athletics are an integral part of a student's experience at Advent. With outstanding teachers and coaches, as well as great facilities, Advent students are physically involved in P.E. classes, after-school care, and as "Panthers" athletes.
These activities occur at either our indoor gym which contains a full sized volleyball court or our rooftop gym. The younger students make ample use of our outdoor playground.
First through eighth grade students participate in physical education four days a week for 30 minutes each day on a schedule that varies between morning and afternoon physical activity. Cardiovascular conditioning is emphasized daily, and a game-based approach to PE provides students with a nice break from academic activities. Fifth through eighth grade students will participate in various different sport exercises that promote team work, communication and leadership qualities.
