"I have come across three programs in my 30+ year career in education that I knew were imperative for my districts. In the 1980s came TESA (Teacher Expectation Student Achievement), in the early 2000s we found Professional Learning Communities, and today it is CharacterStrong. My staff needed assistance in learning how to navigate social-emotional learning in teaching to the whole child. CharacterStrong hit the mark."
- Bill Motsenbocker, Superintendent
What We Do
We offer comprehensive solutions for effective, sustainable school culture change. Learn more about our social-emotional and character development curricula for grades K-12 and dive in to our wide range of professional and student development packages.
Holistic Approach to Implementation
With support from Dr. Clayton Cook from the University of Minnesota, we’ve developed a “Proven Process” for successful culture change rooted in behavioral and implementation science. Framed by three phases, our Proven Process is designed to simplify and strengthen the “how to” of infusing SEL and character development into the daily fabric of your school.

CS is a transformational program that has made a huge impact in our school, and in my classroom. I have always felt like I had a focus on relationships with my students, but this program takes it to another level.

As a school psychologist, I love how the focus of the educator training was on RELATIONSHIPS and the importance building relationships has on creating a culture and climate where children (and staff) are SEEN.

Loved every minute, comfortable and uncomfortable. Made new friends and experienced the CharacterStrong climate first hand. This will make me a better teacher, co-worker, wife, mom, and person.
