Dragon PRIDE Core Virtues

The moment you walk in the door at Flagstaff Academy, you’ll encounter what we lovingly refer to as our “Dragon Culture,” epitomized by Dragon PRIDE Core Virtues. Our school mascot is a dragon, representing strength, character, respect, loyalty, and always striving to do our best and we display our Dragon PRIDE throughout the school, from banners in the hallway, classrooms, parking lot, as well as in our school-wide expectations. Our diverse culture is supportive, celebratory, accountable, and welcomes students, staff, and faculty from all walks of life.

Core Virtues

Flagstaff Academy is committed to providing opportunities for students to develop positive character traits. We have identified Core Virtues which are incorporated into monthly activities and Character Education with students. Our character education focuses on defining and practicing one core virtue each month. Our Core Virtues:

Express Core Virtues Through All Interactions

We work intentionally to create a culture built on “No Surprises.” Honest and respectful communication are central to this goal. We expect every member of our school community to express Flagstaff Academy's Core Virtues through their interactions with one another. Whether in person, during driveline, in conversation with teachers or staff, or through e-mail, we emphasize kind and respectful communication.
