Values are woven into the fabric of the curriculum and are the focus of individual inquiry units. Values are taught as universal and objective characteristics of man. They are not subjective and relative as many values-based programs promote elsewhere. Values are intrinsic to the soul, and education is the process of revealing those eternal qualities through association, knowledge, and practice. A common language of values permeates the school curriculum and helps learners articulate and reflect upon their understanding of acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.
