Evolution Labs, a leader in social-emotional learning and Mental Health programming for K-12 students, and Apex Learning, a recognized leader in online learning, today announced a partnership devoted to engaging students in positive SEL and mental health outcomes. The partnership provides districts with access to the Suite360 portfolio of programs to support students emotional health and wellbeing.

“Effective SEL resources equip students with life skills and strategies for managing stress and change while building perseverance and resilience—all skills that are important, particularly in the midst of the challenges we are experiencing today,” said Chris Porter, CEO, Apex Learning. “To fully support the academic needs of students, we must also support their social and emotional needs. This partnership with Suite360 allows us to continue to provide standards-aligned, student-centered learning backed by powerful efficacy data, now with the ability to offer essential life skills supporting the needs of the whole child.”

The Suite360:Student program covers a wide range of SEL and mental health issues, including bullying, digital citizenship, conflict resolution, respect, racial tolerance, anxiety, academic pressure, vaping, and drug and alcohol awareness. Suite360:Mental Health covers strategies for healthy coping skills, reducing stigma, awareness of mental health resources, and suicide prevention. Suite360:Intervention provides restorative programming to students who commit infractions. Suite360:Parent and Suite360:Staff assures that all stakeholders are involved and equipped to help students be successful.

Web and mobile Suite360 lessons are available in multiple languages. Suite360 offers research and evidence-backed learning materials mapped to the standards developed by the National Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and designed to meet grade-level learning objectives.

All Suite360 programs can be accessed in school or at home on any web-enabled device, and they all include Pulse surveys and a Chat Interface, designed to meet students in the digital world.

“We immediately recognized the synergy between Apex Learning and our core values, putting students at the center of their learning with standards-aligned content demonstrating proven student outcomes,” said Peter Kraft, Founder and President, Evolution Labs. “We believe this partnership will continue to expand our reach to provide more students with access to social, emotional, and mental health strategies – critical skills needed for academic and social success.”
