Social & Emotional Services

Our Scholar Support Team provides ongoing individual counseling, social skills groups for scholars and resource navigation and linkage for Mission Grammar families.

We are proud of our City Connects Program through partnership with Boston College. BC’s City Connects model allows us to holistically assess every scholar’s strengths and needs in the domains of family, academic, health, social/emotional/behavioral.

As part of this model, the Whole Class Review allows for each scholar to be discussed and assessed in each domain. As a result of the Whole Class Review, scholars are tiered based on their needs and strengths which determines the level of needed intervention and support. Individual Student Reviews take place during our Student Support Team meeting. This weekly meeting allows for consultation and planning with caregivers, staff, and teachers to best support scholar needs in a strengths-based and solution-focused way. Scholars and families are linked to community partners/resources or on-site supportive services as needed.

During our Extended Day Program and Summer Academy, Mission Grammar utilizes the ThinkGive curriculum. ThinkGive is about self discovery and understanding the positive effects of giving of yourself — a compliment, a helping hand, appreciation, love. Teachers provide guidance and encouragement but students own their experience. They see their actions making a difference and gain agency in building kind and inclusive communities.

Looking for fun and easy-to-implement social and emotional learning (SEL) activities for home? ThinkGive’s SEL Resources for Parents and Guardians empower you to practice important SEL skills with youth at home (and on the go!). They help you to connect with your children and encourage them to take action to create positive change in their world.
