Lower School

Character Education

At Augusta Prep, character education goes hand-in-hand with academic instruction.

Our goals are to promote the moral, cognitive, and emotional growth of students, to develop self-control, good manners and responsibility, to provide an exemplary and consistent model for students, and to stress to our students that these ideals are admired and respected. 

List of 3 items.

  • Classroom Education

    In addition to the everyday reinforcement of good character in the classrooms, weekly character-education lessons are presented by the Lower School guidance counselor to each grade level. These age-appropriate lessons include activities, games, discussions, and examples from literature.
  • Community Service

    The Lower School houses engage in friendly competitions with one another to benefit various non-profit organizations and charities throughout the year. For example, in October each house tries to collect the most non-perishable food items for Golden Harvest Food Bank’s “It’s Spooky to be Hungry” program.
  • Pillars of Character

    The pillars of respect, responsibility, honesty, and kindness are interwoven throughout the school day at Augusta Prep.  Each classroom prominently displays these pillars, and students and teachers alike strive to abide by these ideals everyday.
