Our Philosophy

As Adapted Physical Education (APE) Teachers, we feel students with developmental disabilities should experience a quality Physical Education program that meets their individual needs and provides them with opportunities to achieve their maximum potential both physically and socially. Our expectation is that the Cantalician Center will have one of the best, progressive Adapted Physical Education programs in New York State.

The Cantalician Center for Learning's vision for Adapted Physical Education is based on the concept of physical fitness and functional activities.  Through participation in a unique APE program, students will be motivated to adopt a physically active lifestyle.

The learning experiences our students will have at the Cantalician Center will promote a positive attitude towards healthy and physically active behavior throughout their life, awareness of a safe and healthy environment, and give students the resources to participate in sports and fitness activities outside of the Cantalician Center.

Guiding Principles

There are certain guiding principles that support our vision for Adapted Physical Education at the Cantalician Center:

  • All students can learn and grow.
  • All students are entitled to a dynamic Adapted Physical Education program.
  • The instructional style of the Adapted Physical Education program will accommodate diverse learning styles and the specific needs of our students.
  • Excellence in Adapted Physical Education teaching and learning grows from a commitment shared by teachers, students, parents, administrators and the community as a whole.
  • Physical fitness and activity are essential for lifelong growth and learning.
  • All students will be motivated and encouraged to participate in individual and group activities to provide them with a broad range of health and wellness opportunities - with a direct focus on effort, sportsmanship, and achievement.
