Social-Emotional Learning

Our intention through the social-emotional learning curriculum is to provide students with tools to solve problems, recognize appropriate and inappropriate choices, develop strategies for making good choices, and develop self-discipline.


During daily Advisory, students focus on work habits and social-emotional learning. 

Students engage in daily social-emotional learning lessons that question, challenge, and require goal setting for character growth.

Each student meets one-on-one with the Advisor on a weekly basis to focus on setting, tracking, and reflecting on goals.

Work Habits

Our students become experts in eight key domains:

  • Comprehension & Communication
  • Time Management
  • Goal Management
  • Resource Management
  • Self Knowledge
  • Motivation
  • Focus
  • Collaboration

Social-Emotional Learning

We prioritize the development of these seven areas:

  • Conscientious
  • Curious
  • Entrepreneurial
  • Perseverant
  • Self-Aware
  • Self-Regulated
  • Socially Intelligent

These areas encompass qualities such as accountability, self-direction, risk-taking, resilience, empathy, understanding team dynamics, and learning to give and receive feedback.
