  • Health I/Health & Wellness (For Credit)

    Students entering grades 9 - 12
    Term 1: June 15 – July 3 (3 weeks)
    9:00 – 9:45 am or 10:00 – 10:45 am or 11:00 – 11:45 am
    Term 2: July 6 – July 24 (3 weeks)
    9:00 – 9:45 or 10:00 – 10:45
    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. By taking this course, it will enable the 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. Health I and the First Aid/CPR/AED, a required Hawken graduation requirement, may both 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 in which they anticipate a planned absence.
    9:00 - 9:45 and 10:00 – 10:45

    Students entering Grades 9-12

    This course is structured around the American Heart Association First Aid/CPR/AED program to prepare individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to prevent, recognize, and provide basic care for injuries and sudden illnesses until advanced medical personnel arrive and includes Adult/Child/Infant care. Upon completion of the week, students will receive American Heart Association certificates for CPR and First Aid. Students must attend the entire online sessions Monday through Thursday. Students will be scheduled for physical testing, which will hopefully take place on Friday, July 31, or Saturday, August 1. These are tentative dates.
