Character education is an intentional effort to help students understand, care about, and act upon core ethical values. Students with good character are caring, just, and responsible. They have developed an internal motivation to do their best and to contribute to the world around them. Good character education improves social and emotional competencies as well as academic performance.
Project Wisdom is one of the oldest and most respected character education programs in the nation. The program is currently licensed in over 17,000 schools nationwide, including Gateway STEM High School.
