Character Education

"The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out."- T.B. Macaulay

Character Education is a process of awareness and focus. At Lake Braddock Secondary School, we work to reinforce the values of our community with examples of appropriate behavior and an awareness of our values throughout the educational process.

Lake Braddock Values

In the spring of 2001, the Lake Braddock community, including parents, students, as well as school faculty and staff, was surveyed, with the help of the Ethics Resource Center, to determine which ideas best represented the values our people hold dear. Small discussion groups further honed the value concepts. One of our goals at Lake Braddock Secondary School is to integrate these values into our educational process and our every day life. Our newest core value compassion was added in the winter of 2014.
