Missouri Senate recognizes JC school
Saturday, January 25, 2014
The Missouri Senate has recognized the students and staff of the Jefferson City Academic Center for being named a National School of Character.
It was the first time an alternative school in Missouri received the honor, which was announced last May.
Sen. Mike Kehoe, R-Jefferson City, sponsored the Senate resolutions honoring JCAC.
The school won the award after undergoing a comprehensive application and interview process with faculty and students to determine the extent that CharacterPlus curriculum has shaped the school’s culture.
The CharacterPlus program is designed to reinforce traits — ideals like honesty and responsibility — that are helpful not only in the workforce, but in life.
