Program Overview

A comprehensive Student Development Workshop (SDW) tailored to your specific needs.

CHARACTER COUNTS! 5.0 is not a one-size-fits-all program nor a scope & sequence curriculum. Instead, our strategy focuses on the root of change – mindset & behavior modification. Our framework called The Fours Wheels of Success (which includes The Six Pillars of Character and School Climate Improvement) provides a common language and expectations that helps develop Academic, Social, Emotional skills and Character traits.

Properly implemented, CHARACTER COUNTS! becomes infused seamlessly into the DNA of your school or organizational climate. Implementation can occur at your own pace and can range in complexity based upon your needs and goals. Give us a call to discuss your needs at 800-711-2670 or submit a request.

    Hello…Thomas Jefferson Middle School (Fair Lawn, NJ) is dedicated to its Character Counts! Initiative. As their facilitator (trained in Princeton through the Character Counts! program – June 3, 2004), I am thrilled with the support, the involvement and the dedication our school and community has shown over the past 11 years. Thank you Character Counts! – That was the best Character Seminar I ever experienced and bringing it into my own hometown school has been a blessing.
