Social-Emotional Learning is embedded into every aspect of learning at Centennial Academy in order to incorporate a whole-child approach. The introduction of new skills and the practicing of those skills, occurs during our morning SEL block.
In addition to teaching new skills and information, our educators create time during the SEL block for scholars to learn and discuss current events happening worldwide.
Additionally, in the SEL block of the day, scholars learn traits they are expected to exhibit at Centennial Academy. In addition, scholars also learn habits to be successful individuals in the world, and learn to distinguish the difference between traits and habits.
Throughout the year, scholars begin to understand that habits are repeated practices, and traits are innate. By practicing the habits, over time our scholars innately exhibit the character traits that make them a HERO.
By the end of the school year, Centennial Academy's SEL approach to education allows scholars to become stronger leaders, exhibit self-awareness and self-management skills, gain social awareness and relationship skills, and excel in responsible decision-making.
After all, everyone of our scholar is a...
I am Helpful
I am Engaged
I am Responsible
I am Open-Minded
Our scholars use the H.E.R.O. acronym to guide their experience at Centennial Academy. These traits are exposed to scholars during SEL and Crew in various ways so scholars can clearly understand our expectations are for them.
