Marian is devoted to developing the whole student, academically, spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically. Marian’s physical education classes promote a healthy lifestyle and spirit, allowing Marian girls the self-reliance to embrace wellness in their daily lives and to achieve whatever they set their minds to.
All Marian students will participate in two semesters of physical education during their high school careers. It is our hope that during this time students gain the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to engage in lifelong physical activity.
Regardless of the avenue, Marian students enjoy these respites from their challenging coursework as they work off stress and release tension while having fun with classmates.
Our physical education teachers are excellent role models of lifelong fitness as both were excellent athletes in high school and college and continue to share their athletic gifts and talents as coaches in multiple sports.
Marian students have four physical education choices open to them, allowing them to find an activity that best suits their interests.
Students seeking a more competitive outlet for their energy may wish to enroll in Individual and Dual Sports or Team Sports, which allows them to take advantage of the soccer field, track, softball field and tennis courts located on our campus.
- Lifetime Fitness is geared to those students looking for an all-encompassing fitness course.
- Weight Training and Conditioning will introduce students to our state-of-the-art fitness center where they will participate in a variety of weight resistance exercises that work all parts of the body.
- Women's Health and its importance to defining ways to think about the important concepts
related to diet, disease, and health care solely in the female community. Open to sophomores, juniors and seniors.
