Independent School Essential: Character Education
"Devoting time and resources to character education sets independent schools apart and distinguishes them from their counterparts. It is an important component of the overall educational program at independent schools. Students can learn about serving others through community service projects at all grade levels. The emphasis on character education is one of the reasons prospective families choose to enroll at independent schools. It’s also a primary reason independent schools produce such fine young people.."
