Fund for Student Character and Leadership

The Stanley Clark School is committed to equipping our students with the knowledge and skills required to contribute to society with poise, thoughtfulness and passion.

Teaching students to positively influence others, as well as discern how others influence them, is critical for their success. Character and leadership skill development at SCS positions students for success.

Exceptional character and leadership development have long been hallmarks of a Stanley Clark education. However, with your support, we are now poised to embed character and leadership in even more robust ways.

A gift to the Fund for Character and Leadership will:

  • Establish a Center for Character and Leadership at The Stanley Clark School, a first for grade school students in our area.
  • More fully integrate service learning.
  • Support a designated faculty facilitator to assure a signature experience.
  • Fund a speaker series to benefit both students, parents and the broader community.
