Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
Social-emotional learning (SEL) is the process of developing the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life success. Adolescents with strong SEL skills are better able to cope with everyday challenges and have the tools to help them succeed academically, professionally, and socially as they grow into adults.
Character is developed when we teach our children to respect people of all faiths, understanding that the world is much larger and more diverse than they can imagine. Social and emotional learning emphasizes the importance of acceptance, cooperation, and appreciation. Service projects offer authentic opportunities for our students to grow and contribute to their communities. Our monthly SEL assembly helps facilitate discussion among all our children to foster a safe and collaborative environment at St. Philip.
St. Philip’s SEL program is supported by the Commission on Education. For any questions about St. Philip's SEL program, please reach out to Donna Tennis (Principal).
