Recreation, Health, and Fitness (RHF)

The Recreation, Health, and Fitness (RHF) program encourages students to make fitness a lifelong goal and to seek activities that are both fun and physically rewarding.
RHF students attend either activity-based classes, where physical movement is emphasized, or information-based classes, which teach behaviors and decision-making around health and fitness. Activity-based classes include yoga, weight training, badminton, intramural sports, hiking, and more. Information-based class topics include nutrition, sports medicine, and injury prevention. RHF classes are partially self-scheduled, allowing students to take ownership of their fitness goals while maintaining flexibility in their schedule.

Six semesters of athletics/RHF credit are required for graduation. Credits may be earned through participation in:
  • Team sports (1.5 credits per season)
  • Recreation, Health, and Fitness classes (1 credit
    per semester)
  • Dance classes (1 credit per semester)
Students participating in outdoor athletic activities may also earn credits through the Outside Activities and Recreation (OAR) program. Ninth – twelfth grade students are eligible to enroll in the OAR Program, and ninth graders who successfully complete one semester of RHF or one season of sport.
