Social & Emotional Learning


The Jewish Academy of Orlando believes that students’ self-esteem and social development is an important part of a quality educational program. Thus, the Jewish Academy has adopted the MindUP™ program for social/emotional development.

MindUP™ is a research-based training program for educators and children. Through the program lessons students learn to self-regulate behavior and mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success.

MindUP™ lessons support improved academic performance while enhancing perspective taking, empathy and kindness as well as fostering complex problem solving skills.
