Character is one of our three core values, and nurturing character in our students is a key part of our mission. The BGA Way is our approach to character education. Respect, compassion, accountability, and resilience constitute the foundations of character in the BGA Way. These traits are the foundations of our character education programming across divisions. Each quarter, one character trait becomes the lens through which we view various topics relevant to student life. From classroom curriculum and parent programming to athletics, clubs, and leadership, the BGA Way is woven through all aspects of the BGA experience.
Foundations of Character:
Respect: Open-mind, Honor, Cooperation, Diversity, Courtesy
Compassion: Empathy, Gratitude, Humility, Kindness, Service
Accountability: Integrity, Honesty, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Mindfulness
Resilience: Courage, Perseverance, Resourcefulness, Risk, Boldness
