EKHLA Core Values

Character Education

At EKHLA we feel the education of the “whole child” is the key to true success. Academics partnered with strong character are the magic recipe. We provide direct lessons on character development tailored to our campus core values in grades K-5. These core values are then infused into appropriate lessons at the middle school level. This all ties together with our K-8 student positive behavior initiative where students work towards earning independence on campus by exhibiting a certain level of self-managing behavior. This, we hope, then transitions into students who become conscientious citizens in our society.
