Students are required to participate in two semesters of physical education, usually in their freshman and sophomore years. The program takes place on-site in Fenway’s Fitness Center, which is equipped with exercise machines, or off-site in gyms at local colleges. When the weather is good, classes may go to a nearby park. A wide variety of physical activities are included, with the aim of encouraging every student to make physical exercise an integral part of life. Health and wellness topics are also covered in the program by speakers from local health organizations.
