In AIA, students in grades 3-8 learn about and develop their social and emotional skills through a holistically integrated approach. Using a blended delivery model, students acquire SEL skills through a combination of teacher-directed and student-directed learning experiences, using both face-to-face and online learning.
As the authors of their own lives, students engage in meaningful self-discovery and solutions-driven problem-solving to better understand and manage themselves while applying respectful, productive ways to interact with others. Inspired by Nick’s message of hope and love, students learn to leverage their own strengths to be their best selves.
Eleven chapters in all, AIA begins with aPreface where students learn the purpose of AIA while reviewing and practicing essential back-to-school Noble Techniques. These skills equip all students with the tools they need to take ownership of their own success.
“There is an imaginary ladder of your life. There is the bottom which is negative and top section which is positive. And in life you are trying to climb up the ladder (altitude).The better attitude you have the higher you can go to success and happiness.”
