Health, Physical Education, and Wellness

In The Classroom

Through a standards-based program that encourages student choice, control, and mastery, it is the goal of the Health, Physical Education and Wellness Department that every student develops the foundational knowledge and skills that contribute to a lifetime of health and wellness.

In and outside of the classroom students are encouraged to demonstrate responsible personal behavior and to respect self and others in all settings. Students also have opportunities to explore career ready electives and participate in classes that are health-enhancing.

To fulfill diploma requirements, .5 units of health and .5 units of physical education need to be accumulated. In order to allow students the opportunity to accelerate and tailor their learning, Seton High School offers a variety of ways to meet State standards.

PE Waiver

Students may meet their physical education requirements through a PE Waiver if they have successfully completed and were a participant in at least two full seasons of a sport.

Credit Flexibility - Physical Education

Under Ohio’s Credit flexibility plan, students may be eligible to work independently to meet State Physical Education standards and demonstrate proof of mastery of those standards. Students must obtain the recommendation of two teachers and the Associate Principal of Academics prior to enrolling in a flexible credit program.

Health Online

Students who wish to meet their Health requirements may participate in Seton High School’s online Health program during the regular school year or over the summer. Please see our Curriculum Guide for course descriptions and additional information about credit flexibility. 


A variety of hands-on, project based electives are designed to prepare students for careers in Healthcare and develop healthy habits that last a lifetime.

Sports Medicine – Seton High School partners with Tri-Health to offer a Sports Medicine class that would prepare interested students for a career in Sports Medicine or Healthcare.

Child Development – This is an excellent course for students interested in pursuing a career in Early Childhood Education or Healthcare.

Foods and Nutrition – In addition to preparing students for careers in Healthcare, this course is designed to develop nutritional skills and awareness which leads to healthy cooking, eating, and living habits.

Sport Management - This blended learning class is available for 3 college credits through Mount Saint Joseph's Early College Credit (Dual Enrollment) Program. Students participate in the course online during the school day and meet one time per week on Mount Saint Joseph's campus.
