Physical Education Academy

The Physical Education Academy provides students from River Falls with quality physical education. It's staffed by students majoring in Health and Physical Education and includes lesson plans and supervised instruction from UW-River Falls faculty.

The Physical Education Academy primarily serves home-schooled students. Participants will be introduced to activities that are designed to help improve motor skills and fitness levels, as well as to develop positive social behaviors. Activities include cooperative games, locomotor and non-locomotor skills, catching and throwing, parachute, SPARK physical education curriculum activities, team sports, nontraditional activities and fitness games. The program is scheduled on a monthly basis in the fall and spring semesters. We offer a K-2 session, grades 3-6 session and 7-12 session each semester. Classes are held in the Karges Center gymnasium.
