Interdisciplinary Academic & Character Development Program

Helping Teachers Grow the Whole Student

Our one-of-a-kind Interdisciplinary Academic & Character Development Program provides educators with grade-specific lesson plans that seamlessly integrate character development and life skills practice into the core curriculum. Every lesson plan features a theme that brings the lesson to life and is designed to be taught by the classroom teacher.

Along the way, students will employ action-learning techniques like role-playing and small-group discussions, and couple these techniques with reflective exercises that encourage them to apply what they’ve learned to real-life situations.

We have had the LFL program for many years and it has become part of our curriculum to provide character lessons to our students on a consistent basis. Over the years, teachers have witnessed first-hand the benefits of incorporating character traits in their daily routine.  Students feel a better sense of belonging, tend to respect the rules, and get along better with each other, thus reducing the incidents of fighting, bullying, and classroom disruptions.
