Chapel Hill Academy uses UMDNJ’s evidence-based Social Decision Making and Problem Solving Program for social skills teaching.
The program is proven to prevent bullying, increase academic scores by as much as 11%, and provide positive and lasting effects on the climate and culture of the school communities.
Designed to be fully-infused as part of our overall teaching process and curriculum, the program positively impacts behavior, academic learning and the social/emotional life of individual students, and provides a foundation of pro-social, critical thinking and life skill learning for all students.
