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.

Seven Habits of Happy Kids- The Leader in Me


Introductions, Rules, Goals



Habit # 3- Putting First Things First- I spend my time on things that are most important. I set priorities



Habit #1- Be Proactive- I am a responsible person. I am in charge. I choose my actions, attitudes and moods.



Habit #2- Begin with the end in mind- I plan ahead and set goals. I look for ways to be a good citizen



Habit #4- Think Win-Win- I balance the courage of getting what I want with consideration of what others want



Habit #5- Seek First to Understand, Then Be Understood- I listen to others without interrupting, I try to see things from their viewpoint, I am confident in voicing my own ideas



Habit #6- Synergize- I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I seek out other people’s ideas because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone.



Habit #7- Sharpen the Saw- I take care of myself. I spend time with family and friends. I find meaningful ways to help others
