Trusted by Mindfulness Educators

Class Catalyst is backed by research led by Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, based on evidence-based SEL strategies, and supported by a top-rate team of seasoned mindfulness educators.

In addition to assisting with Class Catalyst data analysis, through this partnership we are able to provide pre-and post- SEL, mental health, and well-being surveys to use diagnostics to drive our work to be as purposeful as possible.

  • Participating students report an increase in positive relationships and feelings of connectedness with self and others.
  • Participating students report an increase in understanding about their emotions and how their actions affect themselves and others around them.
  • Teachers and school stakeholders feel more informed about the needs of their students and colleagues along with an increased ability to effectively address student SEL, mental health and well-being needs.
