SHIELD training has been featured across the world on BBC World News, BuzzFeed, E!, Hallmark, France 24, Good Morning America, NBC, and more.

Character Development


Good character is a person’s most valuable possession. It is the essential key to success in school, in work, and in one’s family life. There are many things in life that we cannot change, like our height or who our parents are; our character, however, is one of the things we can change.

Students will discover the connection between character and habits, understand the difference between individual acts and habits, and learn the seven-step approach to habit formation and habit elimination.

Our Character Development  workshops are held throughout the school year.
