SHARED VALUES

Image

In pursuit of academic and cultural excellence, Khepera Charter School adopts a culturally based value system that guides the behavior of staff, students, trustees, and community members.  This value system utilizes elements of the traditional value systems as embodied in the ethical code of Nguzo Nane and the Kemetic Principles of Djehuty (Ja-hoo-tee) and Ma'at.  These value systems are reflected in the rules and regulations in our school, are inculcated through a system of rites, rituals, and responsibility; and are infused throughout the curriculum. 

 Khepera seeks to develop the character of each individual through the application of an ancient system of ethics and morals referred to as the virtues of Ma'at. We use these principles to guide our behavior. We expect our students, staff, and families to strive always to reflect these virtues in their highest degree. 

We believe in the excellence of mind, body, character, and spirit and our commitment to the rebirth of academic and cultural excellence, that we have set forth the guidelines within this institution.

Virtues of Ma'at / Principles of Djehuty
Khepera seeks to develop the character of each individual through the application of an ancient system of ethics and morals referred to as the virtues of Ma'at. We use these principles to guide our behavior. We expect our students, staff, and families to strive always to reflect these virtues in their highest degree. 

The virtues of Ma'at include: 
order, balance, harmony, righteousness, truth, reciprocity and justice. 



The principles of Djehuty govern habits of the mind and entail a devotion to scholarship and the pursuit, production, and application of knowledge.

Nguzo Nane

The Khepera Community, as a whole, is guided by eight principles known as the Nguzo Nane. The Nguzo Nane governs community interaction and provides the foundation for building a healthy harmonious collective. 

The Nguzo Nane identifies eight essential principles. 

They are:
1) Heshima (Respect), 2) Umoja (Unity), 3) Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), 4) Ujima (Collective Responsibility), 5) Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics),  6) Nia (Purpose), 7) Kuumba (Creativity), and 8) Imani (Faith)
