Middle School and High School Character Education

The Academy believes that an important component of the daily experience is a consistent and age appropriate character development program.

The Middle School and High School programs helps our adolescent students learn to be responsible, caring, and accepting of their classmates and other members of the Academy community.

With students of various ages in one school division, the older students are given opportunities to become role models for the younger ones. 

This interaction allows the development of leadership, as well as building a sense of community among the students.

Topics which emphasize character building include:

  • 6th Grade – MORE Course

  •  Individual and small group counseling needs

    This may include but is not limited to: anxiety, depression, self harm, eating disorders, suicidal ideations, self esteem, relational problems, stress, family or peer conflict, grief…
