Grade 7

10/31/17 - 11/03/17

All grade 7 students go through character strength training facilitated by the Mayerson Foundation to learn about strengths within themselves and in each other. They are also led through several service immersion experiences while learning how to leverage their God-given character strengths, with organizations such as the Restavek Freedom Foundation and a variety of social service agencies throughout the community. When students return to campus, they engage in reflection activities including an opportunity to share why their work mattered, and where they saw a character strength displayed in someone they served. See the 2017 Grade 7 COW Course Description for more information.
