“Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike.” —Theodore Roosevelt
At Twin Peaks Charter Academy, we are committed to our students' achievement of academic excellence. We implement character education to inspire in our faculty, families, and students a culture of moral and ethical strength. Through a rigorous curriculum, our students become life-long learners. Through character education, our students become engaged, responsible, and compassionate leaders.
No one is born with good character. It is not a hereditary trait. Character is learned. Whether at home, school, or in play, we agree on several basic values to define ethical behavior.
Each and every day, TPCA students are guided in behavior that constitutes great character. Teachers integrate lessons and assign projects based on key character traits. In our halls, our staff model, praise, and redirect students to support their development of great character.
At the elementary and middle schools, we focus on responsibility, respect, citizenship, fairness, trustworthiness, and caring. At the high school, every month highlights a different character trait. Examples include: dependability, determination, truthfulness, and virtue.
We recognize, honor, and celebrate student success in character development through our daily positive behavioral reward systems and at our quarterly character assemblies.
Our faculty and staff have more than seventeen years experience in diligently designing, reviewing, revising, and implementing structures and practices to support students in developing great character.
