Character Education for High School Students

At The American School of Protocol®, we view high school as the last stop before reality sets in. Some students will continue their education, some will join the military, and others will be part of the American workforce. Character Education for High School Students focuses on appearance, job and college interviews, marketing yourself, correspondence, dating skills, attending events, respect and courtesy, and more. Three lessons are also devoted to dining skills. There is a very short window of time to teach these sixteen life-skills lessons. The decision that the students make in a given situation, can change their lives in a negative or positive way. Our goal in teaching this curriculum is to develop more respectful people who know and understand that they are responsible for their actions

Character Education for High School Students is a group activity-based program that teaches students the social skills they need for life during and after high school.
