Banner: PACT Promotes Character

PACT went through a process of refining the character traits that we believe are most important for the students to display daily and internalize prior to graduation. While many character traits are important in our lives we have narrowed down the list. The Joint Steering Committee approved the character traits on September 17, 2009.
