Is physical education/health required every year in high school?

It’s not required by the PA home education law for any year of high school. Some physical education is required for grades 7-12, but not every year.

Read the law so you know the law.

“At the secondary school level, the following courses shall be taught: English, to include language, literature, speech and composition: science; geography; social studies, to include civics, world history, history of the United States and Pennsylvania; mathematics, to include general mathematics, algebra and geometry; art; music; physical education; health; and safety education, including regular and continuous instruction in the dangers and prevention of fires.”

“The following minimum courses in grade nine through twelve are established as a requirement for graduation in a home education program:
(1) Four years of English.
(2) Three years of mathematics.
(3) Three years of science.(4) Three years of social studies.
(5) Two years of arts and humanities.”

The home education law doesn’t define a day, so use a standard that you feel comfortable with.   I recommend doing some research and some thinking before you decide. Personally, I don’t think a 5-year-old child should spend more than 30 minutes a day doing seat-work....
