What Makes Us Different

We are educators with real experience in the field of education. We see what’s missing in education and are ready to support school communities in adopting school-wide SEL to transform their schools and experience lasting results.

What’s More…

1. Social Success in Schools® is the only online All-in-One professional learning training program geared at implementing School-wide SEL.

Our K-12 Adult SEL Professional Development Program is aligned with CASEL’s Theory of Action and includes clear-cut strategies to embed SEL into the natural learning environment of your school culture and climate.

2. Highly customizable program.

Our program can either stand on its own or complement SEL initiatives you are currently implementing in your school.

3. Social Success in Schools® is sustainable.

We recognize this is a marathon not a sprint and anything worth doing takes time. Our program helps schools get their SEL initiative going and keep it going. In this way, your SEL momentum can remain strong even as the faculty changes.

4. Our program includes all training videos and guidebooks in one user-friendly members-only portal for the entire school community to access.

Schools don’t need to rely on sending a few administrators or staff to trainings in hopes that they will return and successfully implement a program school-wide.

Your membership includes ongoing consultation and support from certified SEL experts. No investing in expensive consultants.
