  • Realizing Our Best Selves

    And connecting positively with the world around us
The Health and Wellness program at Steward is designed to empower our community members to develop the knowledge and skills needed to engage in health-enhancing behaviors throughout their lives. Our school-wide Health and Wellness curriculum is skills-based and focuses on various dimensions of wellness. Together, these dimensions and others form a framework that guides community members towards a holistic understanding of personal well-being.

As the Steward community engages in Health and Wellness classes, initiatives, and programs, we collectively build a toolkit of skills related to resilience, self-awareness, empathy, and informed decision-making. The ultimate goal of our Health and Wellness program is to help Spartans realize their best selves and connect positively with the world around them.
