Core Virtues 
is a character education program that promotes civility, respect for the human person, and human excellence in every way.  The word virtue, in fact, derives from the ancient Greek philosophical tradition and means excellence.  It is our best hope for a brighter future.

The program objective is to ignite the imagination of the young, inspiring them to do and be their best.  The program is a catalyst for academic success because it encourages the habits of the mind and heart that are necessary for quality scholarship.
