Course Description

The NC Healthful Living Standard Course of Study is a combination of two content areas: health education and physical education. The two courses complement each other as reflected in the Essential Standard Strands and Clarifying Objectives. Attention will be given to ensure students experience a comprehensive sequential educational program that involves learning a variety of skills and concepts that are health-enhancing.

A minimum of 1 credit of Healthful Living, which reflects both Health Education and Physical Education, is required for graduation from a North Carolina public high school.
