Nakhon Kitjaroonchai, Volume 12, No. 2, 2015 Institute Press 24: "This study investigates the correlation between students’ academic achievement and their involvement in ethical and moral activities. In the descriptive sense, morality refers to a code of proper conduct corroborated by individuals or groups. In contrast, the normative sense defines ‘morality’ as a code of conduct, given specified conditions and endorsed by particular groups. Pornrungroj (2014) stated that morality is a beneficial act which each organization, society, or community prizes its value. Morality is essential and necessary, and it is a desired characteristic which differ individuals to be distinctive. According to the Pornrungroj (2014), the moral values which enrich a person to be virtuous and noble are such as self-discipline, conscience, gratitude, kindness, patience, honesty, austerity, perseverance, and selflessness. Morality refines one’s character and behavior to be well thought of and admired. A person with moral values is able to endure hardship, overcome criticism, and optimistically confront challenges in a tranquil manner. In religious perspectives, for example Christianity, morality is based on God’s character and laws outlined in the biblical doctrines, and morality is modeled by Christ.
In the Christian perspective, morality should not differ from one person to another for the Bible is the source of morality and so is God. The golden rule in the scripture sums up the core doctrine of Christianity that human beings must love their God and their neighbors. Any individual who complies with this golden rule and perceives that God is the source of morality, that person is anticipated to act and live moral life.
Christians believe that moral development can be secured when a person can control his own actions or refrain from exercising thoughts or actions that yield negative effects, and making moral decisions can lead to positive feelings and emotional enhancement.
A number of research articles showed that learners who uplift ethical and moral values and actively participate in ethical and moral activities can improve their inner potential as well as their academic performance. In other words, students’ academic achievement may be linked with their involvement in activities that promote ethical and moral values. Chip, Cynthia and Jane (2003) studied the improvement of student achievement through character education with middle school students in Chicago, Illinois, and they found in their post-intervention data that the improvement of moral character such as integrity, honesty, trustworthiness, and respect increased student academic achievement.
Character education facilitates students on decision making, which Stiff-William (2010) calls ‘decision filter’ where a decision making process engages both cognitive and affective processes and it supports individuals when they encounter barriers or problems in life. This ‘decision filter’ will enhance learners’ ability to make perceptive and sound decisions in life.
Mooney (2010) and Erickson and Phillips (2012) revealed that extra curriculum activities such as religious activities which promote morality and virtue had a positive impact on student success. Mooney found that students who attended religious services once a week or more during their last year of high school had higher grades at college than non-regular religious attendees.
