I feel that Athlos Academy can help lead the way in making a major impact in how physical education/athletic development is viewed and taught in our country – not just helping students to become better athletes, but more importantly instilling the passion and skills in young people to be committed to being healthy and happy lifelong movers.
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.
Athlos Academies believes student success depends on more than academics alone. The Powered by Athlos model builds upon a school’s already high-performing academic program with an innovative Performance Character program and robust Healthy Body program. Through a combination of explicit student experiences, staff development, and an overall shift in school culture, Powered by Athlos partner schools see improved student outcomes in the areas of health, social-emotional learning, and academic achievement.
Strong evidence supports the connection between movement and learning. Schools that do not implement a solid physical activity program are shortchanging student brains and their potential for academic performance.
Children who are fit perform better on attentional tasks that require greater amounts of cognitive control. This includes a subset of goal directed, self-regulatory processes that include planning, organization, abstract problem-solving, working memory, motor control, and inhibitory control.
