A tradition at All Saints Catholic School since the 1990’s, the Virtues Program is a systematic approach to fostering character formation in our students. The purpose of the Virtues Curriculum is to instill in each child a desire to practice Catholic virtues both at home and at school. Although specific, structured lessons are presented on a regular basis, the core of the program is the recognition of the many “teachable moments” that arise each day. The goal is to make the practice of Catholic virtues not just another subject but a way of life for each student.
We focus on a different virtue school-wide each month of the school year. The following is a list of virtues that will be highlighted during the school year.
