What is GRIT?


GRIT (NOUN): COURAGE AND RESOLVE; STRENGTH OF CHARACTER


What is the GRIT program?


GRIT is a character development program aligned with one of the overlying goals of CPA to build character through the anagram of C.O.M.P.A.S.S


C  – Citizenship
O  – Open-mindedness
M – Manners and Teamwork
P  – Persistence
A  – Accountability
S  – Service-oriented actions
S  – Scholarship


How does the program work?


Each month you will be provided with a C.O.M.P.A.S.S. themed worksheet highlighting a specific character trait. This worksheet can include the following:


  • Definition of the character trait focus of the month
  • Talking point suggestions to discuss with your child at home
  • A point system checklist of activities and tasks centered around the monthly focus. Every 20 points = $1 Gator Bucks  


What do you do at the end of each month?


At the end of each month parents must submit the total amount of points earned by their child for the month. You may submit this information below. Your child will earn " GATOR BUCKS" with their points which can be used to shop our GATOR STORE. 


Parents set the tone and lead by example.

Parents DO make a difference.

Take advantage of your influence and spend time with your children talking about the character traits you value and look for in others.
