Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is an integral part of education and human development. SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.

Core Essentials

Core Essential Values have three age group curricula (PreK, K-5th, 6th-12th) that all share a common language - meaning they all share the same monthly value words and definitions. The three curricula are all “taught” differently.  Big Ideas highlight many of the skills and character traits needed for academic and social growth both in the present and in and child’s future.
