What is 7 Mindsets Academy?

7 Mindsets Academy distills extensive research into the nature of happiness and success, providing the language, lessons and community-wide operating system for social and emotional learning (SEL) to succeed.

 

While our professional development team provides training, lessons and supports, our framework complements each school's unique agenda for building positive school culture.

 

Through mentoring, school partnerships and custom implementation support, each school develops its own unified language that empowers teachers, aligns resources, and expands PBIS efforts to better serve the whole child.

 

This language then extends beyond the classroom, supporting a whole-community environment where every child is equipped with the skills to create a life of happiness and meaning on their own terms.

Overview

7 Mindsets Academy is a research-based program that can be implemented at any school to improve academic performance, increase educator engagement, and transform school culture.  It’s the only social emotional learning solution that teaches students the mindsets to achieve happiness and success on their own terms.

7 Mindsets Academy is currently in place in over 200 elementary, middle and high schools and has served more than 150,000 students.  Inspiring lessons, thought-provoking videos, educational games and personalized activities drive positive student conversations that empower educators to consistently impact student lives.

Description

The 7 Mindsets are the result of a three-year research project on thousands of the happiest and most successful people throughout history.

By studying their critical thought processes and approaches to life, we identified the 7 Mindsets they all have in common.

We also discovered that most students are inadvertently applying the exact opposite mindsets, which limits academic potential and inhibits personal fulfillment.

7 Mindsets Academy ignites a proactive mindset shift by getting to the root of limiting beliefs, increasing intrinsic motivation, and instilling the thinking to overcome emotional obstacles and psychological impediments in school and in life.

Based on the foundational premise that every child is extraordinary, the program positively impacts school climate by addressing social and emotional issues and facilitating character development.
