Cultivating Character Program - Lower School - McDonogh School

Cultivating Character Program

Cultivating Character is the Lower School's signature social-emotional learning program, created by our faculty and designed specifically for our students. Grounded in the values on the McDonogh Character Compass (respect, kindness, honesty, responsibility, and service), children learn to apply and practice mindfulness, empathy, diversity, advocacy, conflict resolution, and gratitude in their everyday lives.

From an early age, children actively learn and demonstrate how they can make a positive impact in their local and global communities.
