Mission Statement

Colvin Run is a community of compassionate, honest, respectful, and responsible learners on the run to shape the future.

Character Education

At the foundation of Colvin Run Elementary School is a unique character education initiative, developed in collaboration among our own teachers, administrators, guidance counselors and parents. To maximize the impact of the initiative, the multi-faceted endeavor focuses on five timeless, cross-cultural values: compassion, courage, respect, responsibility and honesty.

Students are taught and inspired to cultivate these values using literature, a common vocabulary of character traits and school-wide integration of behavioral expectations.
