Welcome to the BFA Physical Education Department

The most fun you can have in a required course!

Physical Education is a required course:

  • Three semesters or 1 ½ credits are required to graduate from B.F.A.
  • Students may receive P.E. credit for dance class as well as P.E. class.
  • All students must take one trimester of P.E.


  • At the beginning of each trimester students choose what units they would like to participate in.
  • There are six units per trimester, each lasting ten days. Students generally have two to three activities to choose from every unit. 
  • Students also have the option of taking P.E. at B.F.A. or at the Collins-Perley Sports Center, depending where the unit is being taught.


The B.F.A. physical education department’s curriculum is a standards based curriculum. It is aligned with the Vermont State Standards as well as the National Physical Education Standards.
