About the PE for Athletes Committee

  • The purpose of the Physical Education (PE) for Athletes Committee is to examine current high school PE requirements for students in the state of Pennsylvania, discuss best practices, and identify what other high schools are providing to their students in the area of Health and PE. Our goal is to ensure high levels of engagement and wellness for our students at Radnor High School. This thorough review will help provide clarity on opportunities to enhance our program.
