    This 3-week course is targeted toward students who would like to earn their upper/high school health credit over the summer. During the regular school year, this is the Hawken health class for freshmen. Taking this course will enable students to have a study hall in place of health class during one semester of the regular school year. This course addresses current and lifetime issues such as stress, nutrition, healthy decision-making, mental illness, human sexuality, drug use and abuse, and other contemporary topics. The course will involve both synchronous and asynchronous learning with the teacher as well as group/partner work and has a heavy focus on discussion-based participation. Both Health I and the First Aid/CPR/AED, a required Hawken graduation requirement, may be taken this summer, even by incoming Hawken freshmen. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit. Note: Due to frequent group-project work and the compressed nature of this course, students should not register for a session during which they anticipate a planned absence.

    American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR/AED courses are designed for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for their graduation requirement or job or for any community member who wants to be prepared to help during a cardiac arrest. Our summer course is run by a certified facilitator through University Hospitals and utilizes both facilitator-led lessons as well as hands-on psychomotor assessment. Upon successful completion of the one-time, 4-hour course, students receive a course completion card, valid for two years. Note: We need a minimum of 4 slots filled to run the session, and we will notify attendees in advance of any cancellation.
