Personal Development

Personal Development, Academics

Nobles is committed to nurturing the intellectual as well as the emotional, social, and psychological development of its students. Through a series of courses required of all students in Classes VI through III, the Personal Development curriculum is designed to provide a clearer understanding of self as well as an understanding of the role and responsibility of the individual in relation to the Nobles community and society at large. The courses present factual information and facilitate open discussions about issues such as ethical decision-making, sexuality, and alcohol and other drugs, etc. The goal of these courses is to assist in developing an informed and deliberate decision-making process.

Personal Development IV and III


The curriculum, which is designed as a two-year course, will address issues specific to the experience and development of ninth- and tenth-grade students. Classes are divided by gender and address such issues as: transitions to a new school, personal responsibility, alcohol and other drug use/abuse, personal identity and self awareness, self-reliance and decision-making, coping with stress, communicating with adults, friendships and relationships, harassment, tolerance, and media literacy. This course meets once a week for the entire year.
