Learning for Life's team of educators have developed a supplemental PreK-12 educational program that uniquely integrates its well recognized character development program with the core academic content areas of reading, math, science and social studies. This unique blending of state and nationally aligned core curriculum content (state standards correlation) with universally recognized positive character traits enables schools and teachers to offer a proven character development program that also reinforces key academic concepts.
