Character Counts

Lyles-Crouch is a National School of Character and is committed to developing good minds and good hearts. We focus on The Six Pillars of Character:

  • Trustworthiness
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Fairness
  • Caring
  • Citizenship

Students learn about these pillars through dedicated classroom lessons from the counselor, school-wide events and assemblies, and from their classroom teacher.

ROARS Community Service Program

At LCTA, we promote good citizenship and applying the pillars of character in our community. Each month we suggest community service activities and collect picture forms and calendars from students to see how we are making a positive impact in our community.
