Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum

Prepare Students for Lifelong Success

Personal and Academic Growth with SEL

Learning is social and emotional. That’s why we take a whole-child approach to education, moving beyond a focus on academic achievement alone to incorporate life skills—building relationships, controlling emotions, making responsible decisions—that children must develop for long-term success.

SEL Programs Get Results

More than two decades of research shows that high-quality social and emotional learning programs pay off.


11 percentile-point gain.

Students who participate in a K–12 SEL program score better on standardized achievement tests.


18 years worth of dividends.

From six months to 18 years after SEL programs are completed, students can still derive benefits.


11x return on investment.

Studies show that spending $1 on SEL programs is equal to spending $11 on intervention.

SEL Curriculum Made Easier

No time to integrate a social and emotional learning curriculum across subject areas? No problem. SEL is infused throughout our evidence-based literacy, math, social studies, and science programs. It’s incorporated in whole-class and small-group instructional resources, collaborative and student-choice activities, and personalized feedback delivered by adaptive software.

Benefits of Embedded SEL

With SEL built right into our core, intervention, and supplemental programs, you save time while giving students the support they need by:

  • Building classroom climate
  • Fostering student social development
  • Increasing student confidence
  • Encouraging student empathy
