Building Boys, Making Men
Our Character Education Program
At PDS, we believe that boys should be intentionally taught about authentic manhood and have a biblical framework for making wise and edifying choices during their teenage years and beyond.
That’s why we have spent over twenty years developing Building Boys, Making Men — a character education program that teaches every boy at PDS what it really means to be a man.
PDS wants to partner with you as you raise your son into this kind of man. And because we know boys learn best in small groups through big conversations and hands-on projects, every 5th and 6th grader has a male mentor and meets regularly with a mentor group.
The Seven Virtues of Manhood
The journey from boy to man is a big adventure—and an important one. That’s why PDS published The 7 Virtues of Manhood, Flight Plan, and Building Boys with Spiritual Habits. These books are designed to show our boys what it means to be a godly man and how to live that out in the choices they make today and throughout their teenage years.
