Fitness is fast becoming an essential component in our everyday lives. With the increase in obesity among our youth, and a decrease in physical activity as well as the longevity of life, fitness/wellness is a key component in building optimal health.
The department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (HPERD) is dedicated to enhancing the student's and the community's educational experience through a wide choice of movement activities and academic cultivation. We aim to energize, educate, and foster lifetime wellness values to students of all cultures and diversities. The department's goal is to nurture and prepare all students planning to pursue a professional career in the field of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance.
