Birmingham, Ala. – Character.org, an international organization dedicated to championing character education in schools, recognizes Cornerstone Schools of Alabama High School as a 2022 State School of Character. Cornerstone is the only high school to receive this achievement in Alabama.
Previously, Cornerstone received five Promising Practices for our character development initiatives. We place a strong emphasis on character development as a foundation of a Cornerstone education.
“Our journey toward becoming a State School of Character is directly in line with one of our core values: Excellence in Character,” said Dr. Nita Carr, President of Cornerstone. “Everyone in the Cornerstone community, students, parents, faculty, staff and our Board of Directors, is committed to pursuing our touchstone of Excellence Together. Congratulations to all of our stakeholders for this accomplishment!”
Worldwide, sixty-seven schools and two districts received the 5-year certification as a State School of Character. “Each of these schools and districts have put into place a comprehensive initiative that equips and empowers their staff to reinforce and model a range of positive core values that will shape and form the hearts, minds, and choices of their students,” said Dr. Arthur Schwartz, Character.org’s President.
