How We Collected the Data
The North American Division Office of Education and La Sierra University partnered on this study.
Participants in the study were students in grades five through eleven in NAD Adventist schools.
Teachers administered the Presidential Youth Fitness Program’s five-element fitness test as a part of their physical education classes and entered the results on WELNET.
“True education... is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers.”

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE that in addition to its importance in enabling a happy and productive life, good health is a crucial part of excellent education and that it is important to maintain the proper balance of a our schools’ physical, spiritual, and mental aspects. This study was developed to assess our students’ health status and provide a basis for maintaining or improving that balance.
