Character Education

   Monte Vista is a "Capturing Kid's Heart" school. Our site utilizes the "Leadworthy Character Traits" each month. The K-12 Leadworthy Character traits and lessons are intentionally designed to support the work that our site is already doing to build a positive school culture that inspires and empowers students to lead with heart.

   Each 30-minute lesson aligns with our CKH EXCEL Teaching Model. Lessons are grade-level specific, progressive, systemic, and easy to use with minimal preparation. These lessons also intentionally support and reinforce state and nationally recognized student needs and skills, including:

  • SEL Competencies: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making
  • 21st Century Learning Components
  • College and Career Readiness Skills

CKH identified nine initial character traits to grow the SEL and leadership skills of students.

  1. Empathy
  2. Self-Direct
  3. Teamwork
  4. Responsibility
  5. Respect
  6. Kindness
  7. Courage
