This partnership combines the most innovative and impactful elements of our Healthy Body and Performance Character pillars to supplement your academic curriculum. 

The Healthy Body program focuses on long-term athletic development by establishing a lifetime of fitness for students of all athletic abilities. The Athlos Performance Character program fosters development of key traits through explicit teaching and instructional practices embedded into students’ daily learning activities. In conjunction with your school’s academic curriculum, these programs prepare students to perform beyond the classroom walls.

  • Redefine Physical Education

    Bring purpose back to your physical education program with a long-term athletic development approach


    Build a strong school culture by integrating Performance Character into daily activities

  • Appeal to Parents

    Although schools all have the same intent—to educate students academically to the best degree possible—they too often lack what parents want for their children, a comprehensive approach that develops students’ health and character as well. In addition to being engaged in, challenged by, and successful at their academic studies, parents want their students to be well-rounded.

  • Enrich Your Academics

    The push for higher achievement on standardized testing over the last two decades has resulted in greater time and emphasis being placed on core subjects and less time on physical activity and character education. Ironically, research shows that healthier students are better learners, and social-emotional skills are better predictors of future success than test scores or GPAs.

I think what really sets us apart from other schools is our character program. Not a lot of other schools focus on developing the student as a person. Making good grades is amazing, and important to get into a good university, but we also want them to leave here knowing that, in any situation they find themselves in, they know how to navigate relationships with other people. What these 12 traits do is allow students to fully grow as a person.

The Healthy Body pillar is key and a direct correlation to a healthy future in any student. It’s about creating healthy habits that will stay with you for the rest of your life. We are made up of our daily choices, and to be able to educate on the importance physical fitness and healthy decisions can truly change and shape a new mind set for the future.
