Summer Institute

The Summer Institute in Character Education is a five day immersion in character education with three primary goals: learning about the fundamentals of effective character education; team building and experiential learning; and, action planning for the upcoming school year.  It is designed for character education leadership teams from schools to spend a week together learning about character education in general and as it applies specifically to their schools.
