Strength of character is as important as academic achievement

Christel House’s character development program rests on four timeless values—respect, responsibility, independence and integrity.

Children who grow up in poverty face ongoing challenges, and strength of character is as important as education.

At Christel House Mexico, we teach values and build character. Students are expected to make good choices, to hope, to dream and to work hard to achieve those dreams. They are encouraged to consider careers that will make a positive social contribution.

While negativity, greed and corruption often flourish within impoverished communities, our students are honest, hardworking and compassionate. Christel House students care for their families and communities, and have a desire to make the world a better place.

Christel House gave me a solid basis in my life, empowered my skills, and made me a confident woman.
