Project Success Curriculum
Since 1994, Project Success has delivered an innovative learning model that helps 6-12 grade students connect to their purpose. Project Success’ proven methodology creates the social context* needed for young adults’ development toward success, combining time, support and access with program experiences offered through the arts, expeditions and certificates.
The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) has shown through national studies that evidence-based Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies are critically important for the long-term success of all students in today’s economy, and equally important to academic competencies. Studies throughout multiple industries, including the Google’s Project Aristotle, further verify the importance of social emotional competencies.
PS’ goals for students are centered around these precise SEL domains, with clear objectives built into our published curriculum over the seven-year continuum a student participates in PS.
Our curriculum is delivered in workshops conducted monthly for each student in every school in their English/Language Arts classrooms, and is incorporated into each of our activities outside of class throughout the year — all facilitated by trained, professional and diverse staff who stay with students as they move through grades, developing supportive relationships with students, their families and teachers along the way.

Monthly in-class workshops, using our proven curriculum and delivered by our professional facilitators, help students dream, ignite and grow.
