Character Education Plan



Ignite Innovation Academy believes that Character Education is vital to help develop a well rounded and considerate citizen. It is also part of our mission as a charter school to help make students better people who think about things larger than themselves.


Program Description

Working in conjunction with East Carolina University, Ignite has become a partner of the Sanford Harmony School Program. The Sanford Harmony Character Education program is a curriculum designed to help expand students knowledge of being better people. Using Mr. Z as our guide students will learn age appropriate lessons that deal with everything from respect for themselves to respecting and serving their fellow man. For more information visit:


Monthly Character Words

Each month will be designated with a Character Education Word. Teachers will incorporate the Character Education Word into their weekly lessons. Students will also perform a Character Education Service Oriented Project that shows the Character Education Word on our Make a Difference Mondays.
