What is A Confident Mindset™?

  • A Confident Mindset(ACM) is a frame of mind that possesses the 3C’s of Courage, Character, and Commitment.
  • A student with ACM approaches everyday life with a “why not” attitude (as opposed to asking “why” they would want to try something).
  • ACM is a way of thinking that shapes the actions that students take, and how they process the world and people around them.
  • During the pandemic, our students’ mental health and day-to-day well-being has plummeted, as has that of educators, parents, and administrators. ACM is here to help rebuild the foundation of positive, optimistic, “can-do” attitudes in the midst of uncertainty.
