Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

In alignment with PUSD's vision, goals, and desire to see students succeed, Butterfield partners with Edgenuity to bring in Purpose Prep’s nationally adopted Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum. Butterfield students in grades 6-12 will be enrolled in the curriculum, which will allow him or her to develop social and emotional skills, as well as to define and enhance his or her purpose throughout the year.

Purpose Prep is a premier K-12 Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum and service provider committed to bringing evidence-based, media-rich, and relevant curriculum into schools around the world. Purpose Prep is transforming learning for students, teachers and leadership through its dynamic model called “The Whole Human,” preparing students for learning, career, relationships, and life. The model enhances Emotional Intelligence (EQ), which is a powerful indicator for future success.
Purpose Prep has collaborated with hundreds of experts across the globe to give students an experience that will surpass their expectations. This success will depend on your student engaging with the course content and, in part, will also depend on your support. Your child’s teacher may occasionally assign work that involves interviewing their parent, guardian, caregiver, or mentor. These activities give students a chance to practice their communication skills and to experience the benefits of investing in healthy relationships—and where better to start then at home with their most intimate relationships?

Through Purpose Prep, students will continue to become the best version of themselves—tackling some of the most important behavioral, emotional, and social challenges in their lives to set them up for happiness, purpose, and success. Thank you for your support and for believing in the power of purpose to transform lives.
