Get your students fit with a program that fits your situation! I’ll take you step-by-step through the process of creating a Physical Education program for your new, fast-growing, co-op, or homeschool classical school. Together, we’ll explore the evolution of Covenant’s P.E. program, foundational principles, and pivotal philosophy. You’ll leave with resources, games, supply lists, yearly program ideas, and encouraging inspiration to help you create your own Physical Education program!
