Q. How will I know this program will work?

A. This program combines and utilizes research-driven and evidence-based practices drawn from over 150 pieces of evidence and recommendations from the leading experts in the field, including CASEL. We put our education, training, and research to work for you to take the guesswork out of this process.



As educators, we also understand the value of gathering data and reflecting on our practices, so this program will evolve based on the feedback we receive. This way, we can provide the best SEL program available.


That being said, a great program is just a plan. It requires dedicated individuals to carry it out. This is why it typically takes three full school years to implement SEL. You’ll have some faculty members dive in eagerly, others resist entirely, and the rest fall somewhere in the middle. As the eager faculty members see results, others will follow, but this process requires time, persistence, and patience.

Q. Why is this program so affordable?


A. Simple – true to our educator roots, we are in the business of making a difference. Affordability has always been a big priority for Social Success in Schools, because as educators,  we’re aware of the various strains on education budgets.


We also strongly believe in the power of SEL. We’ve seen it positively impact students’ mental well-being, relationships,  and academic progress. Children should no longer wait to have these critical skills.

Q. How is this program different from other SEL programs out there?

A. We’d love to share how…
