Every Student Deserves Success
We believe that every student deserves success in school and in life. And that begins with Tier 1 universal supports that are equitable, positive and consistent. Only then will students build the tools they need to succeed and build resilience.
Educators know that students who are engaged, confident and can overcome setbacks have the most success in school — and beyond. Our Tier 1 programs provide culturally-responsive, evidence-based instruction to help each student reach their potential.
Measurable Tier 1 Results Matter
We deliver teacher-led and blended and online lessons proven to increase self confidence, motivation and mental wellbeing. As students learn to manage thoughts, emotions and behaviors, they are ready to engage and learn. With EmpowerU schools can expect:
- Better attendance
- Fewer discipline referrals
- Higher academic motivation and achievement
Fidelity of Implementation in Grades K-12
A curriculum will only get results when it’s taught the right way. Our model takes the load off teachers — and it delivers learning the way the curriculum is intended. This means real results in every classroom.
With options for teacher-led (K-12) and independent student learning (6-12), all students in Tier 1 will learn, reflect and apply to create positive personal change. And turnkey audio/visual calming tools between lessons prompt daily practice in the classroom and beyond.
Easy, Engaging & Fun Class Lessons
Students learn critical skills through lessons in their regular classroom.
- Teacher-led digital lessons that require no prep
- Engaging 20-minute digital lessons are scripted with video and activities to ensure fidelity of implementation
- Journaling and reflection sparks application to real-life experience and goals, cementing learning
- Flexible delivery with or without use of student technology devices.
Independent Learning With Support
Embed EmpowerU into a scheduled class (typically health, advisory or P.E.) to provide students the time and place to complete digital lessons with weekly support.
- Engaging online lessons teach skills and strategies for success.
- Instructional path with deep reflection to stimulate daily action toward goals
- Option for weekly coaching provided by classroom teacher or EmpowerU 1:1 online instructor.
The results from our Tier 1 curriculum are driven by its design. From month to month and year to year, students build proficiency in CASEL-aligned core concepts through learning, reflection and common language.

Supporting Teachers In Creating A Culture for Learning
Your educators play an integral role in the delivery of our Tier 1 programs. We make it easy to get started, with a short on-demand digital training that provides all they need to guide their students through the Tier 1 Curriculum.
Teachers consistently tell us that EmpowerU creates concrete, common language for all students to self-manage in their classrooms. And this creates a more positive learning environment where all students are ready to learn.
What People are Saying
“Before starting EmpowerU, I had already been working on loving myself and becoming comfortable in my own skin. But once I was introduced to my Inner Coach and some of the strategies this course has taught me, that goal became a reality.”
“I am happy again, and I love myself again I thought EmpowerU was not going to work since I have already tried so many things. I’ll admit I was wrong. It did wonders! I finally got my sparkle back :)”
“This course has helped me be more self-aware, be more forgiving to myself, and remember my why. I feel more connected and hopeful.”
Family Engagement Doubles Your Impact
Each Tier 1 lesson has an optional family engagement message that schools can send home to parents. This message is designed to compelment and reinforce the resilience and wellbeing skills that students are learning in class, doubling your impact and investment.
