Advanced Physical Education is an interactive course that incorporates the five health-related components of fitness and other fitness concepts; anatomy and physiology; wellness; nutrition and many other topics that relate to healthy living.  This course is designed to enhance lifelong skills for physical fitness. It includes a mixture of physical activities along with online tests, lessons and activities that will give the learner a strong basis for life long physical activity.

Students are expected to keep up an active schedule while in the class--for example, participating in their school or club sport, or pursuing physical activities that interest them.  There will be daily online journaling, plus assignments that guide the students through the course as they learn the tools that support a healthy adulthood.
