The St. Mark’s approach to Character and Leadership Education is integrated in programs and curriculum across the school. We understand a boy’s growth toward leadership as a process that begins with positively engaging a community, grows into skillfully serving that community, and matures into leading the efforts of community members toward shared goals. To strengthen the character and leadership habits of our students, we introduce them to concepts and skills that we expect the boys to master in developmentally appropriate ways. We introduce, teach, and review these concepts according to a designed curricular sequence, so our students learn and practice skills that will help them thrive in boyhood and serve them well as men.
At St. Mark’s, we refer to a student’s Head, Heart, and Hands when referencing comprehensive Character and Leadership Education.
