Values that Guide Our Conduct, Choices & Actions
At all grades, Abiqua adheres to a character development program called HEART which teaches students the concepts of Honor, Empathy, Accountability, Respect, and Teamwork. Staff members recognize that students have different gifts and talents, and encourage expression through multiple intelligences and cooperative learning opportunities.
At Abiqua Academy, the development of social skills in the child is as important as the development of academic skills. Learning to be a positive, supportive member of a community is valued. Students at Abiqua are treated with respect and are expected to treat others with respect.
Abiqua Academy believes that understanding others, solving problems and controlling anger are skills which can be taught. Students learn that people perceive events in their environment differently and that they may share different values. Because in real life, conflicts can arise, Abiqua teaches the importance of conflict resolution by incorporating HEART.
