God-Given Character strengths are the qualities that come most naturally to you. Every individual possesses all 24 God-Given character strengths in different degrees, giving each person a unique character profile. When you know your strengths, you can improve your life and thrive. Research reveals that people who use their strengths a lot are 18x more likely to be flourishing than those who do not use their strengths.

We apply this in learning and overall school life, stretching and supporting each individual to bring out their best and learn how to use these strengths to move them through challenging times, building resilience and motivation.
