We are excited to announce the implementation of a new school-wide program which strongly supports Monticello Academy’s mission and vision. The Leader in Me was written after the bestselling book by Steven R. Covey, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. We are confident that incorporating the principals outlined in these two books school-wide will provide a positive and meaningful framework to both improve our school climate and raise student academic performance.

We have already taken considerable steps to implement the program. Specifically, the administration, faculty, and staff have read both books, discussed the books in ongoing teacher trainings, formed a Leader in Me Committee, held regular committee meetings, purchased and created common signage for classrooms and hallways, introduced the program in our first school-wide assembly, and addressed the 7 Habits during our “character education” time during Homeroom every day (the first 15 minutes of the school day). During this time, teachers facilitate age-appropriate instruction consistent with the 7 Habits and Leader in Me books. We are currently planning our first “Champions meetings” in which a few students from each class who exhibit the habit of the month are invited to lunch to discuss concerns and ideas to make the school better.

We invite and encourage you as parents and guardians to learn more about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The Leader in Me by checking one or both books out at our school library. Please help us find ways to reinforce the positive principles outlined in these books with our students. Even if you don’t check out and read the books, we invite you to talk with your student about the 7 Habits and Leader in Me principles they are learning.

Please join with us by helping us to implement this relevant and meaningful program school-wide.  We welcome your ideas and input. You can contact us at info@monticelloacademy.net.
