High School Program
We believe that children who are healthier, happier, and primed for learning will succeed academically. That is why we begin the journey of teaching and learning by paying attention to the whole child first. Convention tells us to focus on teaching and curriculum but common sense tells us to begin by ensuring that children are primed for learning. At FIT Academy, this means providing a strong foundation of health & fitness.
High School Academic Program
The goal of our high school program is to provide a broad base of academic opportunities and a strong academic foundation. This foundation will prepare students for post-secondary opportunities, including taking full advantage of dual enrollment such as PSEO beginning as early as 10th grade. Our 9th grade schedule will consist of 6 periods per day including one elective such as Spanish, Art, Music, or a multitude of courses available online through Fuel Education.

The FIT Academy high school program will consist of attending classes with our specialist teachers. The program will also have a dedicated room for high school classes, online offerings, and gathering space for high school students. This room is upstairs at FIT Academy and is currently unused.
School Calendar & Daily Schedule
Our FIT Academy school calendar is identical to the District 196 calendar. Our school hours will be as follows:
Start Time: 8:20am
End Time: 2:40pm
Don’t Forget About Field Day!
On Wednesdays, students in grades 3 through 9 will be bused in groups to a nearby indoor turf sports facility to participate in one hour of field activities and sports. There will be no cost to the families for Field Day. This will take up to 90 minutes of the day and modify that day’s schedule for students. Grade levels will rotate throughout the day so there should never be more than 56 students at the facility where our two licensed physical education teachers will lead activities.
