Character Education

CSB uses the theme of hearts, minds, bodies, and voices to represent our belief in growing the entire person. We strive to develop the emotional and spiritual growth of each boy as well as their academic, social, and physical growth.
The entirety of the Chapel program encompasses social responsibility. Each week, there is a different community-building theme presented in Chapel by either the Chaplain or the Head of the Lower School. Each theme is then extended and reinforced in the classroom. Topic examples are humility, acts of kindness, conflict management and how to be a good friend.

Each grade in the Lower School has Community Circles and the Upper School has Advisory Groups. These are weekly meetings in which the boys talk about conflict resolution, multiple perspectives and social justice.
The Human Development Curriculum, taught in grades K through 8, is a program designed to enable the boys to understand, appreciate and respect their bodies. Designed with age-appropriate material and lessons, the boys also learn about nutrition, fitness, expressing feelings and managing conflicts in constructive ways.

Throughout the K-8 Athletics Program, the boys learn valuable skills such as how to play sports, how to be a supportive team player, and how to deal with disappointment. In addition, they develop resiliency and a greater understanding of the need to balance good sportsmanship with competitiveness.
