More Than A Curriculum -
It's A Culture
The research shows that when a school takes time to cultivate a culture of character and develop social-emotional skills, grades go up and bad behavior goes down. It makes sense - when kids feel safe and supported, they perform better and want to be there. When students learn the value of kindness, service, and empathy, they don't just walk out of school being competent at math and science - they walk away being capable, compassionate people.

“Seeing the potential of 9 of my teachers have this training as we look to launch CharacterStrong in our building has been powerful. I can’t wait to see how this is going to transform our building.”
Lance Noell, Principal
“Every time I attend a CharacterStrong Training I walk away with valuable information that I can take back to school and apply with staff and students to increase the climate and culture of our building! This program has allowed us to share a common language and work together to create an environment that our students and staff want to be in, versus have to be in! Thank you!”
