Character Education


At the AGBU Schools we strive to inspire our children to become effective, enthusiastic, independent and lifelong learners. Our unique curriculum is based on the Lebanese National Curriculum, but it is modified to include international and Armenian affairs and studies, and is often personalized to meet the specific needs and interests of our children.

The curriculum is also innovative and concept-based. This ensures children are provided with multiple opportunities to develop their knowledge, as well as understanding and mastery of competencies, skills and abilities. Lessons are structured to encourage critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, while also fostering ownership and engagement.

The main curriculum is further enriched by the study of Armenian language, Armenian History and Religion, which immerses our learners in their own heritage and culture, enhances their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, improves their concentration and their ability to multitask.

  Character Education

Trustworthiness, integrity, self-discipline, respect, caring, citizenship, compassion, and perseverance are characteristics that we to want see in our learners. The aim of our successful Character Education Program is to instill these values, by focusing on them through weekly activities and encouraging the implementation of specific behaviors such as honesty, fairness and responsibility.

In addition, we are the only school to integrate the international “Aflatoun” Social and Financial Program into the curriculum. Through this unique program, our learners are empowered socially and economically to act as agents of change in their own lives for a more equitable world, and to create a sustainable and prosperous future for themselves as well as for their communities.
