We believe that character education is a basic ingredient in the education process and this component hasn’t received the needed attention in the traditional educational system. Therefore, the Academy staff has identified the following character traits as important for the development of responsible citizenship. These character traits are taught and practiced throughout the school year in a variety of specific lessons and settings.
Respect is the foundation for a safe and peaceful school environment that is conducive to learning. Respect may be further divided into respect for oneself, respect for others and respect for property.
We have an obligation for our own thoughts, actions and feelings, taking pride in our efforts and successes. It also means that we admit when there is need for improvement. We apply what we have learned and make appropriate decisions.
Being grateful for the wonder and beauty of the world and its people.
Being dedicated to learning, persevering, and showing self-discipline and responsibility.
We believe that by working together we will produce quality work and achieve academic excellence.
