Character and Virtue Education

Ever since Saint John Baptist de La Salle inaugurated a new approach to education more than 300 years ago, the formation of the whole student has been the heart of Lasallian Catholic education. Today, more than ever, school leaders require formative opportunities aimed at strengthening their leadership and decision-making skills from a virtue and character perspective.
