We believe that physical education is a part of the formation of the human person. This development includes attention to the physical body in a healthy way that acknowledges the necessity of both correct knowledge and appropriate activities in order to promote genuine human well being. The objective of the physical education program at Our Lady's School is to develop the knowledge, skills, and values related to motor skills and movement principles, health-related fitness, sportsmanship and personal responsibility, lifetime sports and leisure activities. All students at ICCS are nurtured in this development appropriate to their age and ability.
In addition to physical education curriculum, Upper School students are given the opportunity to participate in after-school sports. We offer volleyball (girls), basketball (girls and boys), and track (boys and girls). Please visit the Athletics tab on this website for more information.
Immaculate Conception Catholic Schools offers a full physical education program through grade eight. The curriculum is implemented from the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth which has adopted the Archdiocese of Hartford Curriculum.
"Within Catholic doctrine and tradition, there is deep respect expressed for the human body, the temple of the Holy Spirit. Thus, it is natural that a Catholic school would engage and educate students in physical education.
Through the study of physical education, Catholic school students will come to a deeper appreciation for their bodies and knowledge of how to keep their bodies fit. Nurtured by the experiences of exercise, play, and sport, the students will engage in the process of life-long physical fitness. They will learn how to live healthy lives by acquiring life-long fitness and sports skills."
