Partner Spotlight: The Weber School Scholars ranging from Maimonides in the 11th century, to the founders of modern Zionism agree that athletics, health and wellness are essential cornerstones of strong Jewish communities and thriving Jewish schools. In this spirit, The Weber School is proud to announce the new Weber Sports Science Academy, launching next academic year (2019-20), featuring an Honors Diploma program designed to educate students in fields including physical therapies, sports medicine, physical training, fitness and sports management. The Weber Sports Science Academy offers exclusive opportunities for Weber students to develop advanced knowledge and skills in these disciplines during high school, uniquely positioning them for college and careers.
Complementing Weber’s array of competitive athletic teams, The Weber Sports Science Academy blends a rigorous academic curriculum with applied learning. Curriculum includes anatomy and physiology, strength and conditioning, athletic training, sports medicine, research methods and analysis, sports nutrition, and clinical internships. Students who fulfill the Honors track will earn an Honors Diploma upon graduation, paving a path for college and subsequent sports/fitness related careers.
Students have access to added resources for hands-on learning in Weber’s sports annex — an indoor facility for sport-specific training and strength and conditioning. Equipped with batting cages with retractable nets, free weights, racks, TRX suspension trainers, weighted sleds, exercise balls, myofascial release tools, the facility is staffed by experienced professional trainers and coaches. The sports annex serves the Sports Science students as well as athletes in every season under all weather conditions.
