Pathways to Character

Building character in the classroom and beyond

“Character education is a learning process that enables students and adults in a school community to understand, care about and act on core ethical values such as respect, justice, civic virtue and citizenship, and responsibility for self and others. Upon such core values, we form the attitudes and actions that are the hallmark of safe, healthy and informed communities that serve as the foundation of our society." –US Dept. of Education, Character Education…Our Shared Responsibility

Pathways to Character is an after-school based educational program designed to help children develop the basic traits of positive character while achieving academic success. Designed for grades Pre-K through 8, Pathways to Character helps students develop core ethical values through a meaningful and challenging curriculum.
