Boston Prep Moral Analysis

Decent Essays
Boston Prep’s approach to imparting moral character has roots in the school’s founding purpose. This purpose, though complex and multifaceted is clearly illustrated as the founder Scott McCue and his team devised a “more deliberate and more structured” (p.52) curriculum that focused on the development of scholastic principles as well as moralities. To my understanding, it is from this calculated, well-thought out effort of Boston Prep’s founding team that five virtues (courage, compassion, integrity, perseverance, and respect) were selected as a guide to aid these educators as they strived to “…insert [themselves] into the conversation [at a time when] young people are figuring out …the kind of ethical people they are going to become…” (p.52).
