The Caring School Community (CSC) program is a nationally recognized, research-based K–6 program that builds classroom and schoolwide community while developing students’ social and emotional skills and competencies.

CSC focuses on strengthening students’ connectedness to school—an important element for increasing academic motivation and achievement and for reducing violence and delinquency. The What Works Clearinghouse, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), and the U.S. Department of Education have highlighted the Caring School Community program’s research base and effectiveness.
