Flex Academy believes in the importance of maintaining a healthy mind and body and this mentality is woven deeply into the school’s culture and educational philosophy. Social and emotional growth is fostered in all we do.
The Flex Academy will stress:
Health Education teaches basics for healthy lifestyles such as safety and first aid, nutrition, disease prevention and control, family health, emotional and mental health and personal health practices.
Physical Education covers subjects such as physical fitness, team and individual sports, games and aquatics.
Nutrition services provide students access to learn about a variety of nutritious and appealing meals and learn about proper nutrition and healthy habits.
Counseling services improve students' mental, emotional, and social health and includes individual and group assessments and referrals.
Healthy School Environment ensures the area around the school is safe, healthy, and more attractive.
Health Promotion provides multiple opportunities for health and wellness living for staff, families, and the community.
A student's membership to the YMCA and its five locations will greatly benefit students and families alike promoting a healthy lifestyle. Students will have the opportunities throughout the Flex Academy to enhance their wellness through unique learning experiences that will allow students to learn in an environment that best suits them.
