Physical Education and Health form an important and necessary part of the Frassati Catholic High School Curriculum. Each student is encouraged to perform on the level of his or her own capability within the framework of teams and in the pursuit of a common goal.
The mission of the Frassati Catholic High School Physical Education and Health Department is to teach the knowledge, skills, and experience of overall health, fitness, and recreation. Moreover, the mission holds up Pier Giorgio Frassati as the model of a true athlete who can lead his companions to the heights of virtue, friendship, sportsmanship, and holiness.
In the spirit of the school patron, each student learns to be a source of encouragement and enthusiasm on the field of competition. In short, each student should strive to be a source of hope and joy in an athletic environment. Pier Giorgio Frassati was an avid mountain climber, and he found sports and recreation as a vehicle for deepening friendship, virtue, prayer. He was a gifted athlete who led his friends in scaling both the Italian Alps as well as the inner heights of virtue and valor. He took as a personal motto the phrase
Verso l’alto: “To the heights!” The Physical Education and Health Department offers this motto to each student.
