Adapted Physical Education
St. Timothy Christian Academy Adapted Physical Education classes are designed to meet the needs of students with learning differences and physical challenges. Here at STCA we believe all students possess inherent talents and gifts from God. It is our goal to provide a Christ-centered environment where every student can experience success while developing his or her body through participation in physical activity. It is our desire to provide an atmosphere where students are uplifted and loved. We believe students flourish when they are encouraged to focus on their strengths and develop skills to compensate for their learning differences and physical challenges.
Lessons and instruction are planned according to each class and, when necessary, modified to meet the particular need of individual students. It is our goal to advance the development of the students’ motor skills by providing them with daily opportunities to practice these skills by participating in activities, games, and sports that increase their strength, coordination, balance, flexibility, spatial awareness, directional skills, object control, loco-motor movement, creative movement, and cardiovascular fitness. Finally, it is also our goal that students will improve their social skills through participation in group and team games and activities that promote sportsmanship and teamwork.
St. Timothy Christian Academy believes students with learning differences and physical challenges experience success in a physical education setting when the lessons and instruction are modified to meet their needs.
Such success, in turn, builds essential self-esteem and self-confidence.
"For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and self-discipline." — 2 Timothy 1:7
