Student Life

Virtue Program

The main objective of Everest Academy’s virtue program is to offer students, teachers, and parents a means to know, value, practice, and internalize virtues in a consistent and committed manner. The focus is on the practice and acquisition of specific virtues. Virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do the right thing. It allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of oneself.

Students in Everest Academy are provided ongoing opportunities to exercise virtue on a daily basis. Virtue is taught and encouraged in all activities and circumstances of school life. The goal is to help students intellectually understand and internalize the virtues they are asked to practice. This serves to make these virtues part of their own life principles, helping them become true leaders of character. For this reason, Everest Academy considers formation in virtue to be a vital component of the educational program.
