“Class Catalyst has been wonderful in regards to allowing students an outlet to share their thoughts and feelings. It has helped me to give students a voice to share their concerns and a quick and easy way to respond as well.”

Class Catalyst and SEL On Demand, both very user-friendly, and so helpful in meeting our school-wide SEL goals.
-Jill, Director of Curriculum, Chicago Heights, IL
“Our teachers frequently use Class Catalyst throughout the day. The check-ins and activities help keep our teachers aware of the grows and glows of student life.”
-Kristen, Instructional Coach, Chicago Heights, IL
“I am able to quickly communicate with approximately 100 students twice a day. It saves on counselor referrals and is a great way to check-in daily with individual students to let them know that even if they don't see me in the building that day, that I am here and I am thinking of them.”
-Angela Robertson, School Counselor, New Buffalo Elementary, New Buffalo, MI
* Principals surveyed in a 2017 research study believe that their students would benefit from being taught SEL skills.
