2022 National Schools of Character

We congratulate 50 schools and 2 school districts as our 2022 National Schools and Districts of Character.

Each of these schools has put into place a comprehensive approach that inspires their students to understand, care about and consistently practice a set of core values that will enable them to flourish in school, in relationships, in the workplace and as citizens.

Read the official press release.

These schools underwent a rigorous evaluation process to achieve their certification, documenting how they have implemented the standards articulated in Character.org’s 11 Principles Framework for Schools.

Based on decades of research on effective schools, the 11 Principles Framework serves as a guide for schools to plan, implement, assess, and sustain their comprehensive character development initiative.
