Character Building Curriculum
The EAFK online classroom curriculum is called "The Code". Available for grades K-8, "The Code" provides teachers with prepared 10-minute daily lessons that cover up to twelve common character traits per year, per grade level. At the core of our curriculum is Rotary's Four Way Test, which is taught to all students and recited as a daily class charge. Supplemental materials include reading lists, reproducibles, daily announcements, thematic campus decoration ideas, and many other helpful additions.
Elementary school character traits taught by "The Code" offer a choice of: Compassion, Confidence, Citizenship, Discipline, Honesty, Friendliness, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility, Service, Tolerance and Trustworthiness.
Middle school character traits taught by "The Code" are: Courage, Defense, Faith, Franchise, Humility, Justice, Largesse, Loyalty, Nobility and Prowess.

Social Skills Curriculum (Coming Fall 2018)
Starting in the Fall of 2018, EAFK will be adding Social Skills as the next subject in our online curriculum. Based on the character traits of "The Code", our Social Skills lesson plans will transform concepts such as Compassion, Respect, Friendliness, etc. into age-appropriate behavioral actions. Students will learn how techniques like using positive words, showing appreciation, being interested in others, facial expressions, eye contact, listening, and talking in terms of other people's interest will improve their relationships now, and in the future. We will answer questions like "Why should I take this action?", "How do I take this action?", and "What benefits will I experience from making these actions a personal habit?".
From our Brochure . . .
EAFK's effective anti-bullying method is presented for three separate student groups, respectively. Based on the EAFK character-building curriculum, our anti-bullying method encourages behavioral modification by introducing imporant social skills and motivations to address the perspectives of those in each group. Held consecutively in predetermined session lengths, groups include: (1) students who exhibit bullying behavior; (2) students who feel victimized by bullying behavior; and (3) overall student population.
Our approach to anti-bullying helps students learn to improve relationship skills and mutual understanding, while developing a sense of respect and compassion for the entire student body. By producing a healthy line of communication, staff, administration and students can better understand how to prevent bullying on their campus in the future.
