The Premier Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Program
Purpose Prep is transforming students and teachers worldwide through evidence-based and relevant SEL curriculum.
Bringing SEL to Everyone and Every Classroom
Nothing feels better than helping people succeed. Through our media-rich online learning platform, support tools and services, and engaging curriculum, we can make a difference in society.
Serving Educators and World Changers
An SEL program built for educators by educators. Our Professional Development equips teachers with practical tools & techniques to make SEL come alive and be successful in the classroom. Through our program and certifications, adults develop SEL skills that empower them to build strong student relationships, effectively manage the classroom, and improve job satisfaction.
Through our dynamic SEL program, we create a safe place for students to engage and express themselves within the classroom. As students develop SEL skills, they improve their communication and academic performance, which reduces feelings of stress and anxiety. As a result, graduation rates increase, and behavior referrals and issues decrease. We help students create a life vision and strengthen peer bonds.
Purpose Prep considers schools our partners – not just customers. Together, we’re pioneering a movement within classrooms by infusing SEL into the fabric of learning. We’re improving teaching practices, school culture and climate, student achievement, and academic performance. Our SEL and Mental Health offerings serve K-12, juvenile detention centers, correctional facilities, Adult Education programs, and many other institutions.
”Purpose Prep gave me a whole new perspective. Sometimes you need to have that bond with your classmates, your teacher, because you never, ever, ever know what’s going on in somebody’s life. A lot of my friends opened up to me. Purpose Prep opened up our classroom - it gave us a bond.XavierPurpose Prep Student
