The Ross Wellness program fosters skills, attitudes, and strategies that empower students to make intelligent life choices.
The Wellness curriculum encompasses Eastern and Western wellness, team and individual sports, the building of locomotive skills, aerobic conditioning, nutrition, and health education. Ross Wellness courses also seek to establish a balance between individual and collective achievement, with an emphasis on shared experience and teamwork. In the Lower School, daily contemplative practices assist the students in being mindful about their bodies and the world around them. This emphasis on self-awareness and emotional intelligence transfers into Upper School Wellness, where students pursue more in-depth study via elective classes and interscholastic athletics.
