5th Grade - The Seven Virtues of Manhood
At PDS, we want every boy to learn what it really means to be a man. That’s why we wrote The 7 Virtues of Manhood, which walks boys through each of the virtues and shows them what the virtues look like in daily life — at school, with friends, at home, and with God.
Each month, 5th-grade boys are reading that chapter for that month’s virtue — you can see what this month’s virtue is above.
6th Grade - Flight Plan
To equip boys as they grow into men, PDS spent the past 20 years developing Flight Plan, a clear, candid guidebook that unpacks what godly manhood is and what it looks like in daily life — in peer pressure, puberty, grades, dating, and more.
