Social Emotional Learning

Create a Strong Foundation for Lifelong Learning

 Since 2013, St. Luke School has been identified by Committee for Children, the publishers of the Second Step Social-Emotional Learning Program, as a local demonstration site school: an example of program implementation best practices.


This partnership provides implementation resources and support to th St. Luke teachers and staff, and it offers Committee for Children strategies for success and opportunities to see lessons in action. St. Luke’s dedication to this demonstration site partnership is evidence of their commitment to implementing Second Step with fidelity, with school-wide reinforcement, teacher and staff training, and consistent focus on improving school culture and climate.

Our Commitment

Second Step Curriculum

We're committed to explicitly teaching research-based social-emotional learning (SEL) curricula for all P3 preschool to grade 8 students. We will communicate with parents/guardians so that these essential skills are reinforced in and out of school. Social emotional learning will be interwoven throughout all academic areas in an effort to nurture a positive school climate that supports learning and academic success while narrowing the achievement gap.‚Äč

Create a Strong Foundation for Lifelong Learning

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is an integral part of education and human development. SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.

In addition to explicitly teaching SEL lessons to all our students, in K-8 we also teach lessons on bullying prevention and personal safety. We use the Second Step Bullying Prevention Unit and the Archdiocesan Circle of Grade Teaching Safety lessons.
