Fordham Prep requires each student to complete four years of physical education. Classes in physical education are structured to enhance student awareness of the benefits of life long physical fitness. The Prep’s program emphasizes the relationship of physical activity to the physical, mental, social and emotional needs of its students.
Students learn a variety of individual and team sports. Emphasis is placed on motor skill development as well a knowledge of the rules and strategies involved in each sport. Fundamentals of each sport are stressed in the lower grades. The Prep provides excellent facilities for its students, including two gyms, an athletic field located directly behind the school and use of Fordham University’s tennis courts, indoor pool, and new turf field.
