The 8 Keys of Excellence character education program guides young people toward a positive future full of confidence, motivation, creativity, team work, leadership and valuable life principles.
8 Keys of Excellence Character Education Program
A major study by Dr. Victor Battistich, an expert in the field who devoted much of his adult life to the study of character education, found only two factors showed a significant direct link to improving good character and effectively preventing bad behavior: positive relationships with one's family and a sense of connectedness to school. 8 Keys of Excellence address both areas with its school character education program and family character development program.
"As students grow in character, they grow in their capacity and commitment to do their best work, do the right thing and lead lives of purpose. Character education done early and well, puts students toward successful life outcomes." – Dr. Victor Battistich
For nearly 30 years in SuperCamp learning and life skills programs and Quantum Learning school training, the 8 Keys of Excellence have helped young people embody valuable life principles that lead to positive habitual behavior, added confidence and increased motivation.
8 Keys of Excellence School Program
The 8 Keys of Excellence school character education program provides K-12 teachers with a full year of character education lesson plans, online resources, training and support. Already over five million students have been positively influenced by the 8 Keys.
"The 8 Keys of Excellence have had a very positive impact on morale, behavior and character education efforts at the elementary schools. Many teachers and parents continue to let me know how the language of the Keys is evident, not only throughout the school, but throughout the community as well." – Dan St. Romain, Alamo Heights Independent School District, San Antonio, Texas.
Building character in students through the 8 Keys of Excellence helps young people realize their greatness and enables schools to achieve better results.
