About the Ten Core Values




John Adams Academy is preparing future leaders and statesmen through principle-based education.  We see to develop these core values by integrating them into our curriculum in unique ways: 


  • Our scholars memorize and recite our core values on a regular basis.
  • Our teachers lead scholars in discussions of our core values when found in classical literature, or when otherwise appropriate.
  • Our Academy conducts assemblies, mentoring classes, service learning projects and other activities centered on our core values. 
The Ten Core Values have been expanded in detail by our Founders, Dr. and Mrs. Forman and can be found on the menu at the right of this page.  Each of these expanded core values give noble, deep and consistent meaning to John Adams Academy's foundational values and mission.
