How about Physical Education that is fun and social? Can use the skills for the rest of your life? We encourage our students to live life to the fullest. Life should be an adventure with friends, going places, doing new things and learning about our rich and varied world.
Scuba diving accomplishes these activities while building courage and confidence in new places with new people. Yorktown Education builds students and their futures with activities like scuba diving and horseback riding. Our students learn to enjoy new experiences for the rest of their lives, instead of living in fear or failure because they did not try new things.
We thank our partners, TEXAN Scuba and the Blue Lagoon in Huntsville, Texas, for doing an excellent job training our students for the PADI certification. Many students are taking additional courses, which also count as high school and college credit.
Phil Riggs, the owner of TEXAN Scuba, says “I have continuously sought out both public and private schools in our area to introduce and teach the PADI open water class to. I had actually given up on finding administrators of the local school districts who were willing to try something new for their students. What impressed me about Yorktown was the fact that they were actively seeking new ways to get their students involved in areas other than the mainstream physical education classes currently being offered in most schools today. I applaud Yorktown, and their administrators for allowing their students to broaden their horizons and to begin an adventure of a lifetime, by taking the PADI open water class!”
TEXAN Scuba is a PADI 5 star dive center located in Huntsville, Texas. TEXAN Scuba owns the Blue Lagoon, a PADI recreational dive facility, Just outside Huntsville for local diving and training. TEXAN Scuba also arranges all inclusive dive trips with 6 day five night trips to Cozumel, Mexico starting at $1,330, including air fare, lodging, food, drinks, airport transfers, and 9 dives!
