Character First

At TPCA, we believe character education is essential in developing outstanding students. Whether at home, school, or in play, we agree on six basic values to define ethical behavior. These values are known as the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.

Our faculty and staff diligently design, review, revise, and implement structures and practices to support students in developing outstanding character. Students are guided daily in behavior constituting outstanding character through modeling, teachable moments, and conversations. Students have the opportunity to learn about fictional and non-fictional persons who exemplify outstanding character. Additionally, teachers utilize integrated lessons emphasizing the Six Pillars of Character while recognizing and celebrating student success.
