There are three traditional paths to providing social-emotional learning in schools, and both come with significant drawbacks. The first option is directly hiring school psychologists and counselors. While these professionals are an excellent choice for schools with a large budget, they are expensive, have limited availability, and can generate management and HR risks. The next path is to outsource student emotional health to behavior therapy agencies and independent psychologists. This alternative is slightly more flexible, but it’s still…
It’s worth making social-emotional learning a priority at your institution. Studies show that:
- Students who participate in social-emotional learning (SEL) programs outperform their peers by 11 percentile points on standardized tests, which is critical to funding.
- Students with better social-emotional skills are significantly more likely to remain enrolled in school, keeping your student base strong.
- SEL programs reduce rates of student mental health complications like anxiety and depression by 10%, which in turn lowers the risk of high-cost retaliatory action.
curaJOY’s programs turn psychoeducational assessment and social emotional education into gamified and interactive online experiences that help children acquire and develop the critical inner strengths and cultural fluidity necessary to thrive — in school, throughout life, and around the world. The relationship between academic achievement and emotional intelligence is bilateral and symbiotic. We currently offer programs for children 5-11 years old in Mandarin Chinese and English and are expanding our coverage to meet demands.
Originally funded by the US Dept of Education and National Science Foundation, curaJOY programs are proven effective for evaluating and improving children’s emotional intelligence. No other program has undergone extensive efficacy studies like ours. We proactively and reliably identify areas where children need additional development and apply a personalized and effective curriculum paired with continuous evaluation as well as professional assessment reports.
