School adopts New Character Education Program
Mountianville Academy, Alpine, U.T.
Over the summer of 2009, after discussions with key stakeholders, Mountainville Academy (MA) administrators decided to adopt “Leader in Me” as our character education program after seeing it at another National School of Character. Before school began, the program was introduced to teachers, parents, and staff members during a week-long training. To facilitate implementation schoolwide, the school created a team called the Lighthouse team. In October 2009, the program was introduced to the students. In the spring of 2010, parent representatives were invited to join our Lighthouse team. Our Lighthouse team directs our character education and school climate.
