Classroom Sets for Christian Schools
Our character development system helps children understand godly behavior by recognizing and acknowledging positive and morally correct behavior.
- Complements any curriculum already in place
- Strengthens character traits which increase responsibility and respect
- Teaches the importance of character traits like responsibility, honor, diligence, and self-control*

Created by teachers, for teachers, we understand the aversion of adding more lessons when teachers are already overwhelmed with all they have to teach. That’s why we’ve developed a system that integrates seamlessly into every interaction throughout the school day.
If you’re spending more time managing poor behavior and less time teaching the curriculum, this system can help you!
How it Works
Our system builds students’ character and helps them grow into compassionate, emotionally mature adults. Here’s how it works:
Students’ positive character traits exhibited throughout the day. Recognizing good behavior minimizes disruptive behavior.
Students’ well-being by recording their positive character traits on the class Recording Chart. Internalizing encouraging words advances character, academic, and social-emotional learning.
Students’ honorable character with parents through the weekly Conduct Card. Providing feedback benefits all.
The results: Students grow in self-awareness. Yet, just as important, students develop in "others-awareness." Positive relationships of honor and kindness emerge with classmates, teachers, parents, and God.

Why we know it works..
I am so passionate about Honorable Character because:
1. It trained ME, as a teacher, to speak life. I wanted to encourage but time, words and a system weren't in place. I felt like I was just trying to stay on top of the discipline. I have a long fuse but anger would bubble up eventually. (James 1:19-20)
2. There will be less discipline issues. I saw SUCH a difference in the students as I began to look for the good instead of reacting to the bad. It's the KINDNESS of Jesus that draws us in. (1 Cor. 13:4-9, Jer. 31:3)
3. Speaking life breeds true relationships with students and opens the doors for communication, getting to the HEART of the issues. (1 John 3:1)
4. Speaking life TOTALLY CHANGES OUR (the teacher’s and the school’s) RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PARENTS. The positive approach of the Honorable Character system draws more families to our school. If I know my child is being disciplined with a heart that truly LOVES my child, I am willing to stick by the teacher's side.
5. It teaches me to see everyone around me the way Jesus does. That is a game-changer! My love for students and parents grows exponentially.
6. In discipline, kids are not simply getting pounded with "you're bad" messages but with specific character traits that need improvement. It is a very understandable message about a certain THING that needs to be refined.
7. Our families can see the pattern of specific Christ-likeness to be affirmed and also character defining that needs to be reinforced at home. It's a CLEAR message.
8. Honorable Character plants the word of God in our kids. It also opens another door for God's word. It is lasting and does not return void.
9. HC gives teachers a much better way to communicate with parents.
"Your child is struggling with honoring others this week." vs. "Your student has 3 marks this week." It's more specific and more meaningful and shows a pattern that everyone can work on.
Why It’s Important
“Train up a child in the way he should go. Even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” - Proverbs 22:6
Many schools today take a behaviorist approach to training, which assumes that children react purely to their environment. This punishments-and-rewards model uses conditioning and even manipulation to generate good behavior.
These approaches to training are not consistent with the HONORABLE CHARACTER™ system. We take a gentler approach—one that helps students build relationships with themselves, with God, and with their teachers, classmates, parents, siblings, and others.
