CHARACTER COUNTS!

CHARACTER COUNTS! © was created in 1992 with a coalition of 17 nationally prominent youth serving and educational organizations. Today there are hundreds of member organizations and CHARACTER COUNTS! serves millions of children and their families every year. It is the largest character development organization in the world. The program, initially focused exclusively on the development of core ethical traits – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship (the Six Pillars of Character) – has continually evolved reflecting current research and best practices to become a comprehensive student development program embracing academic, social and emotional skills and traits as well as the Six Pillars of Character.

Six pillars of Character

 

El Campo ISD will be utilizing the Six Pillars of Character throughout the year in guidance lessons, and as a foundation for our campus cultures.
