Each student in the Upper School must complete two credits of PE per year. A PE credit is either a season (fall, winter and spring) of an interscholastic sport or a season-long independent program.*
Any student who is a team member in an interscholastic sport for a season earns a unit for that season. Students who do not play on interscholastic teams or enroll in Upper School PE must follow an independent program to receive credits. If students are involved in outside athletic programs (i.e. gymnastics, dance, riding, etc.) with instructors with whom they meet regularly, they must complete and submit an Independent PE Credit Application to the Athletic Department at the beginning of each season. In addition, students must complete and return Seasonal Reports to the Athletic Department for evaluation. No PE credit will be awarded if the student fails to complete an independent study program or fails to submit the required paperwork.
* Any student who takes a Dance Department course (Beginning, Intermediate, or Advanced) for a semester completes one PE credit.
Students who participate in the Spring Musical may earn a PE credit with the recommendation from the Drama Director in consultation with the PE Department.
