The virtues are habits which empower us to know the truth and love the good easily and consistently.

Virtues in Practice created by the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia in Nashville, is a program for children in grades pre-kindergarten through eight to grow closer to Jesus by imitating His life and virtues. It is set up in such a way that a whole school studies the same virtue each month, to provide a whole-school (and at home, whole-family) focus.

The program covers 27 virtues over a three-year cycle, with 81 saints held up as models of the virtues. The VIP program emphasizes role-playing in the classroom so that students can practice how to act when using a particular virtue, as well as monthly projects designed to help students grow in the virtue of the month by practicing it in real situations.

Each month ASCS students will focus on a specific virtue.
