Students at St. John Vianney Catholic School are learning what it is to be a virtuous person. The program Education in Virtue teaches students how to be kind, generous and patient in a world that needs faith, hope and charity.
Disciples of Christ, Education in Virtue is more than a curriculum, it’s a way of life—the means to a happy life. Education in Virtue provides easy-to-use resources and materials that are developed by the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist and based on St. Thomas Aquinas’ teachings on the virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit. These resources provide a framework that helps all ages understand how to live a more virtuous life.
Education in Virtue offers support as you learn, teach, and practice virtue. With time, you will begin to naturally incorporate the language of virtue within your daily life and grow as a disciple of Christ. Recent studies in interpersonal neurobiology and positive psychology support this way of life and show that an integrated way of life leads to the betterment of the human person.
When you learn, live, and witness in virtue, it will overflow into every aspect of life—transforming you into the best version of yourself. Simply put, Education in Virtue is happiness simplified.
