Sportsmanship, leadership, fitness concepts, and healthy attitudes toward fitness are woven together in competitive sports training and psychomotor skill development.

Each grade also participates in a movement project each year. For grades K and 1 this is swimming, Grades 2 and 3 go rock climbing, and Grades 4 and 5 take kayaking and stand up paddle boarding lessons. In addition, students engage in outdoor free play twice daily.
Our middle school physical education program is designed to provide a safe and nurturing place for adolescents to develop healthy attitudes and practices for both mind and body. Students set and meet personal fitness goals by participating in individual and team activities. Emphasis is on understanding the importance of sportsmanship and wellness as a lifelong habit during this time of personal and physical development. Students will have two PE periods each week and will travel off campus to take advantage of recreational facilities in the community including St. Andrews Gymnasium, W.L. Stephens pool, James Island County Park Climbing Wall, and the Charleston County Recreational Centers.
