Lower School Character Education
At Fayetteville Academy, we are committed to our students’ success in and out of the classroom. As our students face the rigors and expectations of academic demands, along with the normal challenges of childhood, it is our goal to provide a school environment that optimizes students’ learning and emotional well-being.
Character Education helps fosters ethical, responsible, and caring young people by modeling and teaching good character and leadership through an emphasis on universal values that we all share.
