How It Works

How it Works

Innovative. Interactive. Innately informative. Class Catalyst is backed by research by Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, based on evidence-based Social-Emotional Learning strategies, and supported by a top-rate team of seasoned mindfulness educators.

Class Catalyst is devoted to three main goals: Connection, Self-Awareness, and Self-Regulation.


Class Catalyst harnesses the technology students love (Chromebooks!) with deep, meaningful ways for them to grow in confidence, trust, and resilience, disguised as a quick and easy task. And Social/Emotional skills are skills for life!



Class Catalyst puts the power in each student’s hands. Students are given agency to select from practices that are based on their input. The more they use Class Catalyst the more they learn what best works for them.


Class Catalyst gives students the ability to connect with teachers when they are feeling triggered or upset. In turn, teachers can respond in real-time by connecting directly with students or triaging support with counselors or social workers.

And remember, all of this is possible in as little as 3 minutes per day!

Each school is unique. That’s why Class Catalyst is tailored to suit your individual needs. Click the buttons below to learn more.
