At Coralwood, the social-emotional development of our students and creating intentional awareness are critical in order for our students to be ready to learn. If the heart is not ready, the mind won't be ready. At Coralwood School, we have a culture of Coralwood Caring.
Focusing on Lerner's 6 C's builds a strong social-emotional foundation for our students.
Lerner’s 6 C’s
Competence: The ability to act effectively in school, in social situations, and at work
Confidence: A sense of self-worth and mastery; having a belief in one’s capacity to succeed
Character: Taking responsibility; a sense of independence and individuality; connection
to principles and values
Connection: A feeling of safety, structure, and belonging; positive bonds with
people and social institutions
Contribution: Active participation and leadership in a variety of settings; making a difference
Caring: Sympathy and empathy for others; commitment to social justice
Competence feeds confidence, which becomes
character, which makes it easier to make connections with others, and through
those connections I can contribute.
