The Middle & High School years are a crucial time for young people to discover and practice the social and emotional skills necessary for a meaningful and successful life. These years present a tremendous opportunity to engage young people in deeper thinking to help them confidently own the advancement of their social and emotional development.
Core Lessons is an age-appropriate, discussion-focused curriculum to challenge students to develop who they are from the inside out and develop skills that increase their ability to be successful in school...and beyond. Core Lessons is grounded in evidence-based research which supports our long-held belief that academic performance and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) go hand-in-hand.
Our values of Honesty, Experience, Connection, Positive Influence, Service Leadership, and Intention are at the heart of every service we provide. With an emphasis on skill and character development, The Core Project does not use Core Lessons to endorse any specific ideology, such as Critical Race Theory. Rather, we remain committed to supporting schools in their efforts to serve students and families by providing a positive and meaningful school environment where students can come as they are, get what they need, and leave prepared for whatever is next.
Therefore, our focus on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) remains strictly devoted toward the development of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision-Making. Schools that adopt Core Lessons as their SEL Curriculum can be confident knowing that they are respectfully partnering with parents to contribute to developing healthy and whole citizens who are socially and emotionally competent.
As an overview of Core Lessons, you will find the Core Messages, objectives, and outcomes for each Middle School and High School Core Lesson. We invite you to familiarize yourself with this information and reach out to your school’s administrator if you have any questions.
