We promote resilience and self-awareness through engaging lessons, activities and projects. The building blocks of our curriculum are:


Students develop concentration, focused attention, and breath and body awareness.


Emotional Awareness:

Student empathy, compassion and self-awareness is supported through recognizing and naming emotions, and the interplay between thoughts, emotions, and behavior.



Incorporating mindfulness and emotional awareness, students learn to identify and question thoughts causing stress and difficulty, look at situations from a variety of perspectives, and discover new possibilities.

Our curriculum is based in Inquiry-Based Stress Reduction (IBSR), a scientifically demonstrated method for reducing stress.
