The series does not simply scratch the surface, it provides an in-depth curriculum in order to set the child up for academic and lifelong success.

Each of our manuals has been carefully constructed to target core lessons appropriate and necessary for children, Pre-K through 12th grade.
Q. Are a variety of instructional approaches used?
A. Yes, each lesson includes different types of instructional approaches. Our syllabus incorporates handouts, scenarios, and homework assignments for the children. We recognize that each child has their own way of learning and therefore the lessons incorporate various types of methods to target all children.
Q. Does the curriculum actively involve all children?
A. Yes, our curriculum actively involves all children and provides the tools to keep the students fully engaged at all times. The curriculum allows the children to interact in different ways and to learn through observations and hands on activities. In teaching the Character Education Series, the children were eager to participate. They wanted to learn more because of the engaging format of each lesson.
Q. Are there clear goals for learning?
A. Yes, at the beginning of every manual, we provide a clear outline of the objectives for the lesson. Each individual lesson begins with stating the goals for the children. At the end of the lesson we include an outline for the goals that should have been achieved by the children.
Q. Is family involvement encouraged?
A. Yes, we believe that family involvement coupled with the Character Education Series creates the perfect recipe for success. Each of the lessons includes homework assignments that require the students to show what they have learned by interacting with their family.
