    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. This course addresses current and lifetime issues such as stress, nutrition, chronic illnesses, physical activity, sex education, and drug use and abuse. Health I and the First Aid/CPR/AED, a required component of Health 2, may both be taken this summer, even by incoming Hawken freshmen. This will enable the students to have a study hall in place of health class during the regular school year. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit. Due to frequent group-project work and the compressed nature of this course, students should not register for a session in which they anticipate a planned absence.
