Through the process of helping our students to completeness, Hoban has designed a Student Wellness Initiative. As Catholic educators, we educate the entire person by fostering the physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual wellness. In doing so, we maintain and strengthen a positive and safe learning environment for all.
The Student Wellness Program includes:
- Education: Programs, activities and online information designed to educate students about the different components of wellness, including positive body image, stress management, healthy relationships and mental/emotional health
- Testing: Drug and alcohol awareness and prevention policy, including mandatory random testing
- Support: Counseling for any student who is in need
Extensive research has found that ongoing education is the most critical component of any wellness program to support high school students during a critical developmental stage and prevent students from using drugs and alcohol.
