The weekly curriculum-based classes target critical areas of identity and character with life-lessons, discussions, journaling, service learning projects, and activities.
Honor Academy follows two program models:
1-Faculty and staff are trained to deliver Honor Academy in the classroom on a weekly basis. It serves very well as material cross-curricular instruction, providing subjects for writing prompts, service learning, social studies discussions, and even art projects.
2-Programs are instructed by vetted, background-checked, trained volunteers with a strategy of ongoing engagement and development to ensure the highest quality and strongest impact for every student. This model requires volunteer recruitment and training on the part of the school, but offers many opportunities to engage parents and community leaders.
WHY IT WORKS
Honor programs provide a turn-key solution for teaching the essentials of character, coupled with a structured leadership development track that creates a self-driven path of personal growth. The program has been an essential element in transforming the culture of school campuses and recreation centers, creating an atmosphere of respect and responsibility. Teachers report that the curriculum gives them a clear, consistent venue for establishing clear, consistent expectations regarding conduct in the classroom and around campus.
