Social-emotional learning helps your child learn about their emotions and how to use them in a healthy, positive way. It builds a foundation that sets students up for success, both personally and academically. In fact, studies show that when schools implement social-emotional learning, there are improved student attitudes, social and emotional skills, school behavior and achievement testing scores. 

Epic is dedicated to partnering with students and their families to create a personalized education for students. While online learning with Epic, students are taught social-emotional skills such as communication skills, problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, personal excellence and responsibility for oneself.
