Course Description: This summer exclusive offering teaches the foundations of data management and statistics while introducing students to the basics of physical fitness and training. In this course, students will complete three fitness evaluations at designated dates in order to establish their baseline fitness, track progress, and analyze their performance over the course of the summer. In coordination with instructors, they will develop a manageable and goal-oriented personal exercise routine that is informed by best practices in healthy habits, endurance-training, and strength-building. Additionally, students will partner with one of our statistics teachers to learn the basics of gathering clean, consistent data on their fitness progress and physical health over the duration of the summer. Students will also learn and develop their skills in analyzing, evaluating, and presenting that data.

Students have the option to work with our strength and conditioning coaches in private sessions or to develop personalized fitness plans for an additional cost.

This one trimester course counts .333 credits toward Parish graduation requirements, and it fulfills one third of the required Athletics credits for graduation. The course is graded PASS/FAIL.
