Character Building


Character education fosters the development of ethics and responsibility and teaches about values. It teaches the value of caring about others, being honest, and all the things that make for outstanding citizens! Research shows that schools implementing good character education programs report reduced levels of violence, crime, disruptive behavior, and discipline referrals while improving  attendance and academic achievement. We provide resources through our school counselor with lessons and activities as well as information for families to learn about how the lessons can continue at home. Together we can grow our student citizens to be great role models by sharing the same message at school and at home.

Throughout the school year, our students learn a different character trait each month:

August: Back to School!
September: Responsibility
October: Respect
November: Kindness
December: Compassion
January: Courage
February: Integrity
March: Honesty
April: Citizenship
May: Perseverance

"I am certainly grateful for schools like TMSA that value educating the 'whole child' through high academic standards and a comprehensive character education program." - Justyn Knox, M.Ed., NBCT, NCDPI
