6 PILLARS OF CHARACTER
San Tan Charter School firmly believes in promoting character education in all areas of the school day. Whether at work, at home, or at play, there are basic values that define ethical behavior. These values are not political, religious, or culturally biased.
Josephson Institute calls them the Six Pillars of Character, and they form the basis of all programs at San Tan Charter School.
Honesty, integrity, reliability, and loyalty. Being trustworthy means keeping promises and doing one’s best not to deceive, even with white lies or statements that one might defend as “technically true.”
The Golden Rule is the most useful guide here: Treat others as you wish to be treated.
That means being courteous, listening to others, and accepting individual differences.
Accountability, self-control, and the pursuit of excellence.
Being responsible also requires that we carefully consider the consequences of our choices before we make them.
Being fair means playing by the rules and not taking advantage of others.
A fair person makes informed judgments without favoritism or prejudice and does not blame others carelessly
Kindness, compassion, altruism — these are the heart of ethics. Of course, some ethical decisions inevitably cause pain, but the caring person acts to minimize hardship and to help others whenever possible.
Good citizens work to make their community better. They are committed to protecting our environment and to making our democratic institutions work. They know the law.
