2021 Schools of Character

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have honored our 2021 Schools of Character with a virtual ceremony on Zoom. A recording of this ceremony can be accessed via our blog post. We are proud to announce the 2021 New Jersey and National Schools of Character. Despite the challenges of the pandemic and remote learning, we had a surprising number of schools submit applications and be named as New Jersey Schools of Character and National Schools of Character. Once again New Jersey leads the nation in the number of schools recognized in this program! Below you will find a list of the honored schools as well as a copy of the Recognition Book describing the 2021 New Jersey Schools of Character. Congratulations to all of our schools who were so honored!
