About SEL

SEL—an acronym for “Social Emotional Learning"—is a process for developing skills that underpin academic success. Specifically, SEL focuses on the identification and management of one’s emotions, goals, and mindsets.

CASEL, one of the most respected resources for SEL research and policy, describes SEL as “the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.”

SEL can help people in all aspects of their lives. For students, it frequently has a positive impact on their academics, too. In one study, SEL interventions that addressed CASEL’s core competencies increased students’ academic performance by 11 percentile points, when compared to students who did not participate in these programs.

Your SEL Stories


“Week after week, we see positive changes in the climate and culture of all of our middle schools, district-wide––all because our students and staff truly enjoy applying the SEL tools.”  

– Dr. Ilia Molina, Miami-Dade County Public Schools


“It’s led me to think more positive, and be more wise in my decisions.” 

– Anh, ELL student from Vietnam


“It’s helped me see other possibilities and solve problems better.”

– Nora, student at Hillside Middle School


“It’s amazing to me how many schools do an assessment of some kind, but then they don’t do anything with the data. Why waste your time and money if you’re not going to do something with it? I’m not doing any test unless I have some intervention to implement to go along with it. And so, this is a perfect pairing.”

–Jeff Allmon, guidance counselor, McPherson Middle School

Mawi Asgedom’s Learning Story

Some of our SEL resources were created by Mawi Asgedom, who has an impressive learning story of his own.

Asgedom left Ethiopia as a child, spending three years in a refugee camp before being resettled in the US. Language barriers, financial struggles, and personal tragedy created obstacle after obstacle in his life. But with the help of a few mentors and some SEL training, Asgedom gained confidence and grew in both his academics and his sense of self. He eventually got a scholarship to Harvard University—where he gave the commencement address to an audience of 30,000 people at his own graduation.

To this day, Asgedom continues to believe in the power of SEL training to change learners’ lives, just as it changed his own.
