Social Emotional Learning: Competencies

Ignite Student Growth Across Key SEL Competencies

Mosaic by ACT SEL framework builds upon the five core CASEL competencies: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Responsible Decision Making, Relationship Skills, and Social Awareness. These competencies drive positive gains in academic achievement and student well-being.

Forge Connections Across Competencies

The five competencies in our framework complement and reinforce one another. Substantial SEL research validates that building skills in one SEL domain increases opportunities for growth in others. Students and educators pursue a combined, holistic approach to learning that fosters success.
