Conscious Discipline is a positive, skill-based program that helps educators, parents, and students learn to build respectful relationships, support self- regulation, and resolve conflicts.


By Sara Petit-McClure, Head of School, Truxton Academy




When children, families, staff, and community members come to Truxton Academy, they will be welcomed into a caring school family. Conscious Discipline is a positive, skill-based program that helps educators, parents, and students learn to build respectful relationships, support self- regulation, and resolve conflicts in ways which enhance brain development. Our successful Conscious Discipline program will create a community of purpose and belonging. Safety, connection, and problem-solving are the core components of Conscious Discipline.


"Children and adults learn to interact in a kind, respectful manner so that all community members feel a sense of safety and belonging. Teachers and students learn and practice composure and empathy. Conscious Discipline builds a community which allows students to make choices and see logical consequences of those choices. Through this community, all members learn how to see the best in others, build self-esteem, learn from mistakes, make strong choices, set limits respectfully, and manage their emotions."

Truxton Academy’s Project-Based Learning environment relies on collaboration as well as

independence. Conscious Discipline helps students learn the skills they need to monitor their own actions and collaborate with others. Children learn how to make choices which benefit themselves and the world around them.
