The award-winning Second Step program is used at Global Academy. This program teaches social and emotional skills for violence prevention. The program includes research-based, teacher-friendly curricula, training for educators, and parent education components. Research shows that aggressive behavior in children predicts risk of later delinquency, substance abuse, school dropout, early parenthood, and depression. Classroom use of the Second Step program helps provide children with the skills they need to create safe environments and become successful adults.

Second Step teaches students how to effectively manage their emotions and demonstrate self-control. By learning these skills at a young age, children will be equipped with the emotional skills to manage conflicts effectively as they mature.
