Social Emotional Learning (SEL) & Healthy Students
Through the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum, children and adults both acquire and apply the knowledge and skills that are necessary in managing emotions, achieving goals, showing empathy for others, maintaining positive relationships, and making responsible decisions.
The SEL curriculum focuses on five core competencies:
- Relationship Skills
- Responsible Decision-Making
- Social Awareness
These softer skills in conjunction with strong academic skills are critical in assuring that students are successful beyond their K-12 educational experience. Promoting social emotional learning skills leads to higher academic achievement and an improved ability to function in schools and in the workplace.
