SEL Curriculum lessons

Our Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum is adapted from CASEL’s five competencies. Our lessons inspire students to learn about themselves in new ways. As a result, they gain unique perspectives and appreciation for how their own thoughts, ideas, and feelings impact themselves and others.

Students will gain knowledge and skills to develop a deeper understanding of themselves. They will discover more about their own identities and how to balance both positive and negative feelings. They will learn to recognize their strengths, advocate for support when needed, and understand the science of developing a growth mindset.

Students explore how emotions affect their well-being and understand the importance of effectively managing them. They’ll examine the impacts of stress, learn techniques for managing and preventing stressful situations, evaluate their priorities and understand how they influence time prioritization, explore their habits, learn how to edit them, and develop new, healthy ones.

Students will learn about the different factors that shape perspectives, be introduced to empathy, and learn to express it through compassion for others. In addition, students will learn to develop and express respect for others they may disagree with on a topic or position.

Students will learn what it takes to build and maintain healthy relationships and work with others collaboratively through effective communication.

Students will understand how to make decisions and understand the impact and consequences while also learning how decisions connect to ethics, social norms, and expectations.


When implemented effectively, social-emotional learning programs can positively impact students inside and outside the classroom. 

According to research compiled by CASEL, skills such as self-awareness, managing emotions, developing empathy, building healthy relationships, and making responsible decisions can help achieve the following:

  • Improve academic achievement
  • Decrease negative classroom behavior 
  • Increase ability to manage stress and depression
