Health and Wellness

Foundations in Health and Wellness is an innovative and collaborative program that emphasizes a comprehensive understanding of health and wellness related issues that affect the physical and psycho-social development of young women throughout their lives. Our curriculum reflects our expertise in understanding how girls learn with particular emphasis on each student's unique leadership abilities. The program encourages and supports students in their journey to develop critical thinking skills and self-reflection in a manner that fosters self-advocacy and informed decision-making. Through differentiated instruction, interdisciplinary learning and student-centered teaching approaches, students participate in class discussions, small group activities and role plays. At each tier of the program, students are encouraged to develop and enhance their innate leadership capacities and voice.
