“In this curriculum, you’ll be inspired, challenged, and moved to be the best YOU that you can be—to love yourself, love others, and make responsible decisions.” - Nick Vujicic
AIA stands for Nick Vujicic’s Attitude is Altitude Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum. AIA is a CASEL-aligned, holistically integrated curriculum designed to meet theneeds of the whole-child actively and digitally.
Nick Vujicic,a world-renowned motivational speaker, launched the initiative to help guide and inspire students with Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) after experiencing a childhood of hardship due to bullying.
He developed AIA with a diverse team of educators with leadership and teaching experience in elementary, middle and high school in rural, urban and suburban as well as traditional and online school settings throughout the United States and beyond.
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is a teaching and learning approach that involves a process through which children and adults learn to understand and manage emotions, and channel those emotions to achieve goals, develop and show empathy for others and maintain positive, healthy relationships that lead to a lifetime of responsible decisions, success and fulfillment.
AIA is a comprehensive learning experience that includes a curriculum where students learn and repeatedly practice practical SEL skills, known as the Noble Techniques, that help them shift to be confident, proactive, respectful, compassionate students who develop healthy relationships and make responsible decisions. This experience is built upon an intentional implementation approach.
AIA Curriculum is written in grade bands, and organized by SEL learning targets as chapters. Each of the five core competencies are interwoven throughout each chapter, never being taught in isolation. The theme of the curriculum is to “Be the Author of Your Own Life.”
