Character.org certifies schools and districts each year at the state level that have developed and implemented an intentional, proactive, and comprehensive approach that embeds character into all aspects of the school life. Schools and districts will be considered for Character.org’s highest distinction – National School of Character. Since its inception, Character.org’s Schools of Character program has positively impacted nearly three million students, staff, parents, and other community members.
“We are excited to announce today the 2023 State Schools and Districts of Character,” said Dr. Arthur Schwartz, Character.org’s President. “Each of these schools and districts have put into place an initiative that equips and empowers their staff to reinforce and model a range of positive core values that will shape and form the hearts, minds, and choices of their students.”
