Moral Development

Plato Academy’s guidance policy focuses on promoting autonomy (self-control) and personal responsibility. Students are engaged with an interdisciplinary curriculum that promotes intellectual rigor as well as empathy and ethical awareness.

Service learning connects classroom curriculum with identified social issues and needs. It engages students in projects that address these needs and builds their social and academic capacities. By integrating service learning into our curriculum, students are led to “praxis” (informed committed action) and prepared to become true members of a democratic society who possess a strong sense of social responsibility and civic awareness.
