AST fosters leadership skills by focusing on the Social and Emotional Learning needs of our students.
“Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions,” (CASEL, 2013).
To support implementation, AST partners with Know My World.org.
"Know My World stands for social, emotional, and cultural literacy in students to support a benevolent and forward thinking society. Students first begin with an education of self to become effective citizens and leaders. A skill set that employs self awareness, confidence, self reflection and accountability promotes socially responsible citizenship. Students transform from individuals to highly skilled and impacting leaders eager to contribute powerfully to the world." (Know My World, 2015).
