The Academy for Character Education

                         academy and education logo


We believe that character education provides the basis for developing a stronger, caring community. Character education initiatives can help create a community featuring responsible, respectful behavior that welcomes the quest for justice and excellence. We firmly believe in the mandate that character education needs to be infused into the curriculum of all schools and in our communities. Comprehensive community-wide character education programs result in positive changes for families, schools and communities. 

Character Matters.
