The six pillars of character are:

Trustworthiness A person of character lives with integrity; is honest, reliable, and loyal; keeps promises, has moral courage to stand up for what is right even when it is hard to do; and does not cheat, steal, or lie.

Respect A person of character values all persons; respects the dignity, privacy, and freedom of others; is courteous and polite to all; is tolerant and accepting of differences; and does not resort to insults or bad language.

Responsibility A person of character meets the demands of duty; is accountable; pursues excellence; practices self- control; and does not give up easily, especially when others are counting on him or her.

Fairness A person of character is fair, just, and impartial; plays by the rules; and is open to different viewpoints; does not seek to lay blame; and does not take advantage of others.

Caring A person of character is caring, compassionate, kind, loving, forgiving, and considerate; thinks about how his or her behavior affects others; and does a good deed without thought of reward.

Citizenship A person of character is a good citizen, does his or her share, volunteers in the community, is a good neighbor, and respects just laws.
