“Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.”
Hawks Nest STEAM Academy is proud of its commitment to character education. Throughout the school year, students and faculty will engage in various character-building opportunities. Students also have an opportunity to engage in character education lessons in classroom guidance. Parents and community members may read our Hawks Nest STEAM Academy School Counseling Program newsletter by clicking on the file below. While we will highlight a character trait each month, character education is not in itself a program; but, is evident in the culture of the school through relationships, interactions and values of the school family.
