Character Qualities

    Biblical character is the foundation of all our programs and integrated into our curriculum and culture. Our monthly character qualities focus on a specific area of growth every student needs to strive for. The character quality is introduced at the beginning of the month and includes a description as well as a verse from the Bible to emphasize what God says. Students are taught the importance of making wise choices based on the character qualities and to be set apart for the greater glory of God. Psalms 4:3 “but know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The LORD will hear when I call to Him."
