Character Education

The Lutheran Academy

Allentown, PA

Character Education“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”Proverbs 22:6
  • The JOY program is designed to promote doing what is right in all areas of life.
  • JOY is motivated by Christ’s unfailing love for all and our desire to emulate that love.
  • Understanding the Gospel message allow us to say, “I love Jesus, I love Others, I love You.

Lifelong Guidelines Developed from JOY“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us…”Ephesians 5:1-2a

Through their actions, everyone can play their P.A.R.T.T. in spreading the joy of Jesus’ love.

  • Personal Best
  • Active Listening
  • Respect Others
  • Truthful
  • Trustworthy

  • These skills will include…

Common Sense





Sense of Humor







Problem Solving





Life Skills“You will ever remember that all the end of study is to make you a good man and a useful citizen.”—John Adams
christian conduct
Christian Conduct
  • The JOY program serves as the basic foundation for promoting proper behavior.
  • The primary goal of TLA is to provide a safe educational setting where our students can learn to live according to the good and gracious will of God.
  • Behavior should not be motivated from fear but as a response to God’s love.
  • The JOY program emphasizes rewarding good behavior. (i.e. Caught being good ticket)
discipline policy he who heeds discipline shows the way to life proverbs 10 17a
Discipline Policy“He who heeds discipline shows the way to life…”Proverbs 10:17a
  • TLA has determined that any behavior that does not reflect Christian conduct will necessitate disciplinary action.
  • All Lutheran Academy agents are required to model exemplary JOY behavior and report any student misconduct.
  • Students violating school rules or procedures will be asked to identify which guiding principle he/she has dishonored.
parental involvement
Parental Involvement
  • TLA recognizes the vital importance of parents in the educational process and believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to promote proper behavior.
  • Research has shown that parental involvement is the best predictor of student success.
  • Studies have identified three ways that schools can involve parents in its character development programs: (1) information recipients, (2) partners, (3) clients.
information recipients
Information Recipients
  • Least active way parents can become involved.
  • Parents receive information in the form of newsletters or emails as to what the school is doing to promote character development.
parents as partners
Parents as Partners
  • A child’s parents are the first and most important teachers.
  • Likewise, teachers act in loco parentis while students are under their care.
  • Both teachers and parents need to behave in ways that promote positive development.
  • To most effectively educate kids, schools need to encourage a partnership between themselves and parents.
parents as clients
Parents as Clients
  • Schools can positively interact with parents by being a resource for parents.
  • This includes providing parents with information/training on topics related to child rearing, such as positive discipline, bullying, and risky behavior.
how to encourage parental involvement
How to Encourage Parental Involvement
  • Help parents understand that it is part of their parental role to be involved in their children’s education.
  • Provide non-threatening opportunities to participate in school activities.
  • Make parents feel welcome in the schools (example—a parental resource center)
  • Ignore students’ embarrassment—deep down most want their parents’ involvement.
win win win win education is the art of making man ethical georg wilhelm friedrich hegel
Win-Win-Win-Win“Education is the art of making man ethical”— Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
  • When parents are involved in the character development of their children all stakeholders (children, parents, school, and society) are better off.

  • It is the sincere wish of The Lutheran Academy, in partnership with parents, to educate the whole child in Christian values and encourage a loving relationship with God.
  • We believe that our JOY program is a major PARTT of our Christian-based approach to character education.
