PATHS® Program

Create the school you've always dreamed of
thanks to:

  • improved student behavior
  • reduced classroom disruptions
  • greater academic engagement and achievement!

Create more time for teaching,
more capacity for learning.

The PATHS program is grounded in social and emotional learning (SEL). SEL helps children:

  • resolve conflicts peacefully
  • handle emotions positively
  • empathize
  • make responsible decisions.

When students learn and use SEL skills, behavior improves and disruptions lessen. Instead of wasting valuable classroom time managing misbehavior and providing discipline, teachers can teach and students can learn.

Significantly improve academic achievement.
Data from more than 270,000 students was collected for a large-scale study of universal, school-based SEL programs, including the PATHS program. In that study, SEL students showed an 11% gain in academic achievement.

Build the brain power children need for school success.
As reported in Science magazine, the PATHS program has been proven to help build executive functions (EFs) in children's developing brains. EFs include:

  • impulse control
  • problem solving
  • reasoning
  • planning
  • working memory.

These skills are proven predictors of math and reading competence throughout a child's school career. In fact, they're more important to a child's school readiness than IQ scores.
