Social Emotional Learning

As much as it matters what our students know, it also matters who they are as people. We emphasize lessons about understanding how our brain works, how to manage and control our emotions, reactions and relationships, and so much more. These skills matter and we make sure our students, as well as our staff, have opportunities to develop as people.

"It's been a huge impact. During our time here they really lectured us on the importance of education, so once we went to middle school and high school, we already knew in the back of our minds that we were going to go to college."

"Leaving Momentous was sad for me, however I felt extremely prepared for where I was going. I believe the friendliness and the openness to helping other people really prepared me."

—Kai and CJ, 

former Momentous School students

“I love momentous because we have great people here and we have awesome teachers. In my class right now, I feel like I don't have to be smart, I just have to be myself and I can learn. I just love that they tell you to never give up.”
