Meadowdale’s Exercise Science Pathway Prepares Students for Careers in Fitness, Physical Therapy and More

Alexandra Kincaid Meadowdale High School News, News

Students in the Exercise Science pathway at Meadowdale Career Technology Center prepare to enter careers in personal fitness and physical therapy. Upon graduation, students can begin entry-level careers or pursue post-secondary education.

In this program, students learn about the body and how it moves, and have regular physical conditioning and weight lifting sessions. Students also learn about sports medicine, injury prevention, and how to safely care for injured athletes.

Students have the opportunity to earn 11 college credits and various work-related credentials, such as a certified personal trainer. However, a personal trainer is just one of many career paths students can choose. Other possible career paths include a physical therapist or athletic manager, among others. 

More than 70 students are currently in Meadowdale’s Exercise Science pathway. Interested students can contact their guidance counselor for more information and apply for the program when the district’s Career Tech application is available in the spring. 

Additional information about the district’s 26 Career Tech pathways can be found at https://www.dps.k12.oh.us/career-and-tech-education-opportunities/
