Pillars of Character

Someone once observed: “Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted” (Author Unknown)

It has been said that character is the foundation for all true success. A person may have intellect, money, position, or power, but unless he has good character he is not considered to be truly successful. Our character is not just what we try to display for others to see, it is who we are even when no one is watching.

Today’s world faces many difficult problems. The list is simply endless. At the root of these difficulties, is the lack of good character qualities. If we are to find lasting solutions to the problems of our day, we must deal with these root causes! We must first work to improve our own character, then teach good character to our children, and help those around us to improve their character. Charcter education is essential to the growth of Christ’s church to our own spiritual growth.

To instill the importance of character in our students,  we foster Pillars of Character  each month. Our prayer is that by instilling these character traits in our students, Visitation Academy will create a “Culture of Kindness” and a  positive school climate for our students, making Visitation a compassionate, safe environment where students can learn and truly live our Mission Statement ”We are called to act with justice, to love tenderly, to walk humbly with our God.”
