Each campus creates opportunities to have fun and be active. Age-appropriate activities are key to wellness and thriving. Telos offers recreational outings, super-activities as well as therapy groups by a licensed recreation therapist. These are typically “fun” activities that have a powerful therapeutic benefit. On a more technical note, the Neurofitness Team consists of several coaches who work closely with the Primary Therapists and associated treatment teams to build individualized fitness programs that are not only fun, but bring great therapeutic benefits.

Cutting-edge Neurofitness is a Telos secret to success. Studies have shown over and over again the need for sustained heart rates, at least 20-40 minutes per day. By doing this, dopamine storage and receptors increase in the brain and, in turn increase focus, willpower, and mood regulation. The typical Telos student avoids activities and sports because of bad experiences in the past. Telos coaches meet the students where they are and help them find ways to enjoy new activities. Neurofitness can be a lot of fun. It includes walking, hiking, and even biking the award-winning trails in the Rocky Mountains and other activities the students find entertaining. What sets this apart from other technical fitness activities is the coaches’ direct communication with the therapeutic treatment team. As the Primary Therapist works with their student they see firsthand the benefits and often counsel with coaches on next steps and benchmarks.
Telos wants to achieve as much normalcy as possible for students. A Telos student should never feel like they are in a hospital or institutional setting. To offer a full range and quality of life, Telos High offers 10 varsity sports for students to participate in or to cheer for on the sidelines. Certified by Utah High School Activities Association, Telos High is a 1A school and competes with other 1A, 2A, and sometimes 3A schools. Like all schools, a participation and equipment fee is associated if your student chooses to participate.
