School Notes:

  • The Center for Character Excellence insures that the ideals that Culver values are a fundamental part of all programs on campus. This reinforces Culver's mission to be the best whole person education available to high school students.

    The Center accomplishes this goal through training and integration. Students and faculty are trained in the areas of character strengths and positive emotions. Concepts learned through training are also integrated into the academic, student life, leadership, and athletic programs. All of this serves to make character strengths more than mere words – a real part of how students negotiate the world.
