Ethics and Values

Student Life_Ethics.Value.JPG

We develop our students' ethical and moral framework, always seeking to develop compassionate habits of heart and mind. The intention toward this is found every day, in every classroom, from lists of behavioral expectations in Lower School to the graduation speeches delivered by our 8th graders. The Seven Pillars of Character, social-emotional literacy, and Roots and Wings presentations provide a framework to help students work through conflicts, examine their own behavior, and develop their values. We hold this work to be as important as that of our academic program.

Seven Pillars of Character

  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Caring
  • Fairness
  • Citizenship
  • Courage
  • Responsibility
