Health & Sports Medicine Magnet

Program Description

Students in the Health & Sports Medicine Magnet engage in a rigorous curriculum that connects athletics to biological principles.  Our motto is: Mens sana in corpore sano, Latin for "A sound mind in a healthy body."  We believe in the inseparable connection between physical, mental and emotional health.  We aim to educate our students accordingly.  Through Project-Based Learning, our students learn and apply academic content to authentic health-related areas.  Students have the opportunity to obtain real-world experience in the area of sports medicine by providing physical therapy support to our nationally renowned athletics program.  Through our annual blood drives, health fairs, guest speakers and field trips, students interact directly with medical professionals and gain first-hand exposure to health professions.

Electives & Advanced Courses

Students have access to an extensive array of A-G courses, including thematically-aligned courses related to sports medicine. In our Sports Therapy progression of classes, students learn about the human body from a certified, professional athletic trainer.  They also learn specifics about common athletic injuries and how to treat them.  Students in the Advanced course work with the athletic trainer in caring for our athletes before, during and after sporting events.
