“SEL is an integral part of the Legacy Schools model. Support from this award will allow us to infuse SEL into every classroom through intentional instructional time and comprehensive curriculum. Our goal is to help students become collaborative, creative, intellectually curious innovators and to possess a social justice mindset to solve real-world problems. We support the social and emotional development of the whole child by aligning all programs with our Core Design Pillars: providing life-changing academics, supporting authenticity and self-actualization, building a powerful community of support, stressing revolutionary innovation in all things, and leading with a social justice lens.”
