High School Health (Credit: 0.50)

Created especially for Christian high school students, this five-unit course presents relevant health-related concepts and encourages engaging discussion from a biblical perspective. Students will study not only the physical, but also the cultural and social aspects of making healthy choices. As a part of a complete learning management system, high school health is a self-directed course infused with technology-based lessons, tools, and exercises to enrich learning for students and streamline instruction and administrative tasks for teachers. Like all Ignitia courses, Bible verses (KJV) and biblical references support the development of a Christian worldview and encourage practical Christian living.

This engaging health course was created just for Christian high school students with an emphasis on the topics that not only interest them, but cover essential information they need to make decisions that could affect their physical, mental, and social health for years to come. Beginning with an exploration of the systems of the human body and life cycle, the course examines nutrition and fitness, love and emotions, safety and first aid, drug use, and sexually transmitted disease. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Ignitia High School Health enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.

Throughout the course, students will explore the following topics:
  • Body Essentials
  • Physical Health
  • Social and Mental Health
  • Preventative Health Care and First Aid
  • Responsible Living
