The ARS Everyday Ethics program promotes spaces and opportunities to nurture values and morals in each of our students. The program empowers them to create a world of greater justice, peace and dignity, while working both as individuals and collectively.

The aim of the program is to help our students build on their individual characteristics, while appreciating the diversity around them, understand and respect people from other cultures and beliefs, to think critically and understand how to create non-violent alternatives in order to live peacefully together.

The curriculum is built on learning opportunities and practices that allow ethical reflections which foster interconnectedness, the development of imagination, critical consciousness, and self-driven learning through social-emotional and self-management skills, global contemplative practices, reflections and studies, community service both at home and abroad, environmental studies, human rights and civics.
