Health and Physical Education
The mission of our Health & Physical Education program is to help students learn the skills necessary for performing a variety of physical activities and understand the benefits of achieving and maintaining a physically active lifestyle and good health for a lifetime.
Fauquier County endeavors to meet the physical and health needs of all students. Students in grades K through 5th grade receive regular physical education instruction (including recess and class time), students in grades 6-8 participate in an HPE course each year, and high school students complete a minimum of health and physical education courses to fulfill graduation requirements. We have a variety of high school electives available for students who wish to continue their persuit of healthy, active practices.
