Social Emotional Learning
In alignment with our mission to maximize student potential, while instilling core values in alliance with a supportive school community,
Santa Cruz Cooperative School believes that Social Emotional Learning is an essential part of education.
We subscribe to The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) notion to develop students who are self-aware, caring, responsible, engaged, and lifelong learners who work together to achieve their goals and create a more inclusive, just, and equitable world. To that end, we are committed to developing systems, structures and services that support the social/emotional well-being of our SCCS community in order to develop principled leaders and lifelong learners. Students are given support and opportunities to develop the skills of empathy and resilience to care for themselves and others.
