Anti-corruption education is one of the preventative measures carried out in an attempt to eradicate corruption. This study aims to build anti-corruption character within high school students by using dialogue method in learning Civic Education. In order to achieve the aim, students’ understandings of corruption and its consequences, development of their critical thinking skills and anti-corruption attitude as well as commitment are needed. Under a qualitative approach, the participants were recruited from two public high schools including Civic Education teachers and students. Data were obtained through classroom observation using the observation sheet, interview sessions and documentation studies. While data obtained through classroom observation method were analyzed descriptively, the responses to the interview and document studies were analyzed qualitatively. The results show that students have an adequate understanding on corruption and its consequences as during the interview sessions they showed a high cognitive level. Additionally, students’ critical thinking skills are categorized as high. The research findings conclude that students’ anti-corruption attitude could be enacted.
