The academy also offers its paid members classes for youth in Character Development, Stranger Danger and Bully Buster Programs. Moreover, the academy is launching a new character development program called “Powerful Words Character Development!” for children ages 3-14.

“This full education process provides purpose to what we do as teachers—it gives our students something for which to strive, the strength to explore, and a foundation on which to succeed.  We feel that by providing several facets to learning, both physical and mental, we can ultimately help our students to grow in a variety of positive ways,” says Dr. Robyn J.A. Silverman, creator of the Powerful Words Character Development System.
