Edgenuity began working with cFitness Academy in 2012 and offered a selection of Health and Physical Education courses to its partner schools in Florida. Duval Virtual Instruction Academy, a full curriculum virtual school serving K-12 students in Duval County, was one of the first schools to implement online Health and PE courses through cFitness Academy to meet the individual needs of its students.
“These courses allow our students to develop and maintain a healthy routine that works for them,” said Carrie Sowell, Teacher at Duval Virtual Instruction Academy. “The quality content and structure provides an effective environment for our students to learn, engage and grow, and we look forward to adding more options from the new suite of courses that Edgenuity is adding.”
“We are focused on engaging students across all subjects with robust curriculum and the tools they need to be successful, and Physical Education is no exception,” said Edgenuity CEO Sari Factor. “Online health and fitness has taken off through apps, trackers and watches, and we’ve partnered with cFitness Academy to transform how students can experience Health and P.E. in a way that matches their own pace and style.”
“Our country is facing an epidemic of health problems such as obesity and heart disease often caused by inactivity, lifestyle choices and an overall lack of health knowledge,” said cFitness Academy Executive Director Katie Carone. “cFitness Academy is working to address these issues by providing personalized health and PE courses to students -- empowering them to develop healthy lifelong habits. We’re excited to work with Edgenuity to expand our reach to more students, schools, and districts nationwide.”
