We can help you align your school in three easy steps
Using one curriculum for both character education and social-emotional learning reduces strain on teachers and on your budget.
Focusing on a common language brings everyone (your whole school or your whole district) onto the same page.
Wrap around resources throughout the school ensure students hear, see, and practice the values each day.
Using core essentials in your school will help you →
Your time is limited – you need everyone on the same page, speaking the same language, with the same vision for kids: to treat others right, make smart decisions, and maximize their potential.
get everyone on the same page
We use monthly value words (or Big Ideas) and a simple application to help focus on developing internal competencies in order to influence outward behaviors. Or in other words, as we tell kids, “Ideas that grow inside you to change the world around you.”
Infuse SEL Competencies
We infuse the social-emotional learning competencies with each of our monthly values:
☑ SEL Competencies: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, Responsible, Decision-Making
☑ Big Idea Values: Wisdom, Initiative, Individuality, Contentment, Service, Self-Control, Compassion, Cooperation, Hope, Perseverance

What others are saying about Core Essentials
Core Essentials has revolutionized our character education program. Our students are putting others before themselves and are demonstrating the values that are taught using the Core Essentials Program.
– Ash Blanton, Cleveland Road Elementary, Georgia
In our middle school, we found this framework to be meaningful and align to a bigger vision in our county where local businesses and organizations also focused on these same character traits. We also were able to link these traits to employability skills that ultimately develop better citizens and employees in our community. This work is truly making a difference!

Our school loves Core Essentials which we have used for our character education for years. I love the videos, the color sheets and colorful visuals are a favorite. The children enjoy hearing about the animals. Thank you to our partner in values, Chick-fil-A!
