Athletics, Physical Education and Wellness
In our mission statement, we pledge to graduate students who are “physically fit and emotionally unafraid,” and our approach to physical education reflects that holistic commitment to body and mind.
Whether through Wellness and Movement, our signature health and physical education program, or competitive team sports, Avenues students are supported to pursue excellence and develop the habits that lead to lifelong mental and physical health.
Wellness and Movement (WAM)
The program for nursery and pre-K uses dance and movement as a tool for physical and creative development. Classes focus on movement exploration, observation, self-awareness and expression while utilizing a joyful combination of dance choreography, drama, music, storytelling and improvisation. Kindergarten classes expand on this, progressing into the introduction of sports such as basketball, soccer and volleyball.
Spanning grades 1–10, Avenues Wellness and Movement (WAM) is a unique health and physical education experience rooted in positive psychology and dynamic play. WAM focuses on social-emotional wellbeing and physical literacy through a comprehensive movement-based curriculum.
Students in grades 9–10 also take elective classes at leading neighborhood fitness boutiques including Soul Cycle and Row House.
WAM activities include:
+ European team handball
+ Floor hockey
+ Track and field
+ Ice skating
+ Strength and conditioning
