Lower School Character Development


The Character Cornerstones serve as the foundation for our JK-12 grade Character Education program. The Cornerstones curriculum provides direct instruction around a developmentally appropriate set of social-emotional skills, creating a foundation on which students build academic achievements while instilling qualities that students will use at Collegiate and beyond. The goal is to equip students with the tools to manage their personal conflicts and successes while developing a deeper awareness of their feelings. The Cornerstone lessons present a social skill-building opportunity that supports more thoughtful, intentional, restorative, and kind interactions with their classmates. The curriculum also seeks to build problem-solving and coping skills at all grade levels.
