Welcome to Health, Physical Education and Aquatics

Physical Education
As an integral part of the total education program, Physical Education promotes the growth, health and development of each individual physically, mentally and socially. In order to complete graduation requirements, all students must participate in and earn a minimum of 0.5 credits of Physical Education each year. 

Health is an important part of the Wellness curriculum. Students will begin health in ninth grade (.5 credits) and finish the full health credit in tenth grade (.5 credits). These courses focus on strategies for academic and emotional well being and success.

Radnor’s natatorium allows us to offer a semester of swimming to our tenth grade and various aquatic selective courses for our eleventh and twelfth grades. Tenth grade swimming is integrated into the tenth grade PE course and is required for all tenth graders, while the selective offerings are only available for eleventh and twelfth grade students. Students take a swim test during their ninth grade year for swim level placement.
