The Anchor Project
The Anchor Project is a program at Bishop McNamara focused on promoting Wellbeing and Character. The Mission Statement for the Anchor Project is:
The BMHS Anchor Project helps students learn to think with Christ, by enhancing their well being and building strengths of mind, heart, and soul.
This program is designed to provide students with additional support regarding building their character, and tools to promote their mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.
The Anchor Project is a “Project” because it is continually evolving as an undertaking, with the goal of making it the most effective source of support to our students that it can be, based on data from our school and findings from the unfolding area of character education research. The Anchor Project involved groups that met during Prime Time for all BMHS freshmen during the 2017-2018 school year. Based on insights from its inaugural year, the Anchor Project is evolving this summer and will look different when school resumes in the Fall of 2018. Stay tuned!
