A Holistic Approach to Wellness

At Hewitt, the emotional and physical wellbeing of girls stands at the heart of our program. The physical education department works closely with our wellness team, school nurse, and school counselors to align the curriculum with the best principles of wellness education for young women. Hewitt's athletics program fosters a holistic approach to wellness that helps our girls and young women develop their academic, physical, emotional, ethical, and social skills.

A Fit and active lifestyle

Starting in lower school, our physical education programs teach girls how to embrace a fit and active lifestyle. By the time they reach upper school, our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of health and wellness programming in addition to our athletics offerings. 



As early as kindergarten, Hewitt students embrace the joy of movement while developing important skills related to athletics, including:

  • Spatial awareness and balance
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Cooperation and collaboration


We provide our students with a range of activities that promote a lifelong commitment to physical health, including elective offerings in:   

  • Yoga and Pilates
  • Dance
  • Strength and conditioning


To ensure our young women have all the tools they need to become committed to self-care and a healthy lifestyle, Hewitt offers seminar classes in:

  • Nutrition
  • Sleep
  • Stress Management
