Eric Jacobsen is the founder and director of a model Neohumanist Education school in Long Island, New York.   Over the course of 15 years, he has been interviewing students who graduated from the Progressive School of Long Island to discover the impact of the Neohumanist “character-based education” on their long term development.

Their responses have been compiled, revealing a clear pattern.  There are 13 character qualities that these young people, now in high-school, college and beyond, consistently report observing both in themselves, and in their peers from Progressive School.  Although these qualities may exist in others too, they are seen with amazing frequency and to a high degree in those who benefited from the Neohumanist educational foundation. Eric calls these qualities “intangible gains” because they are not easily quantified.  Yet they are the engine that drives academic and personal growth.
