Integrated Program Features
Starting with the very youngest students in the Hershey Community, the child's needs for physical activity are considered in every environment, both outdoors and indoors.
The physical development of the body is a very important aspect of our program at all levels. Our goal is to give the children the experiences and skills that develop a positive attitude toward the improvement of physical health, strength and coordination. The mastery of the body and the development of the brain are inextricably linked

Younger children focus on movement; it is the primary skill children are acquiring and perfecting within their classroom life.

Elementary children have a specifically structured program and a teacher who leads them through various team sports and skills of coordination, balance and gross motor skills. We foster an environment for all the children where various skill levels are respected and where children are encouraged to continually challenge themselves. These sports and skills include:

  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Soccer
  • Flag Football
  • Balancing
  • Eye-Hand coordination exercises

Adolescence brings rapid physical changes to children. Getting used to an adult body requires regular physical activity, physical challenges and the chance to explore different modes of physical expression. The adolescent program also includes a variety of structured physical expression activities that are fun, adventurous and outdoor-oriented in nature. For more details, please see the personal growth page. Some examples include:

  • Orienteering and Outdoor Skills
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Softball
  • Running
  • Biking
  • Yoga and Pilates
  • Fencing
  • Horseback riding
  • Canoeing
