A clear expression of EL Education’s roots in Outward Bound, the spirit and experience of adventure permeates Amana Academy.

Amana Academy’s Physical Education (PE) program places a strong emphasis on personal fitness, nutrition, and character development, and reinforces the EL Education school culture of respect, responsibility, and achievement. Physical education teachers explicitly plan opportunities for students to challenge their perseverance, personal fitness, and collaboration skills.

It helps to create student engagement and focus on character that distinguishes the EL Education experience. Adventure can be any physical, artistic, or intellectual experience that involves risk, challenge, and discovery. We promote the kind of adventures that create opportunities for leadership and collaboration as groups of students and teachers face challenges together.

Every student (K-8) takes part in Adventure PE as a Specials class. A large part of Adventure PE is going outside and engaging with the natural world.
