“No one ever mastered any skill except through intensive persistent intelligent practice.” - Norman Vincent Peale  

As students transition to High school and into the world beyond the classroom, emotional intelligence is a vital tool to navigate their thoughts and emotions. At this critical juncture in their lives, there is no better time to support students in increasing their mental health.

Unit 1

Exploring Our Brains

At the high school level, we study the functions of each brain lobe and how the brain communicates with itself and the body at a deeper level. In connection with the brain, we strengthen students’ understanding of mental health and factors that affect it.

Unit 2

Promoting Brain Health

Unit 2 explores 10 lifestyle habits and their effect on the brain including a deeper understanding of neurophysiology. Students research and present information in class about these lifestyle principles. They are also given hands-on experiences with lifestyle principles during class time and encouragement to develop these habits in their lives.

Unit 3

Understanding Emotional Intelligence

In Unit 3, we dig deeper into the 5 components of emotional intelligence. Students are given tools to help build their emotional intelligence and support mental health. One of these tools is the knowledge and skills to identify and build healthy boundaries. Students learn how to apply SMART goals to long and short-term career planning. Students also gain a deeper understanding of cognitive behavioral therapy and rational and irrational thoughts.

Unit 4

Untangling Our Thoughts

Unit 4 explores the 10 cognitive distortions through a biblical lens and enables students to become proficient at identifying and disputing each one. To wrap up, we discuss how to process loss from a biblical perspective. Students are shown how the healthy lifestyle habits they have learned can help them process loss and grief.

Hear what our teachers and students are saying about us

So much growth!

I saw a student look up at me with tears in his eyes over his ruined art project and say, “I think I can handle it, Teacher,” instead of getting upset with the student who had knocked over the cup of water.

- Elementary teacher

So proud ❤️

Just a small exposure to the principles of this curriculum can make a big difference. I had a seventh grader terrified of heights who couldn’t get down from the top bunk on an overnight educational outing face her fears and climb down just because I shared with them the basic principles of EQ and CBT taught in this program. She had the biggest smile on her face after she had conquered her fear.

- Middle School Teacher

Complete transformation!

I watched a troubled 3rd grader choose to be quiet, instead of yelling back in the classroom when another student called him rude. That wouldn’t have happened eight weeks ago when we first started piloting the GoEQ lessons.

- Elementary teacher

Complete behavioral change

I saw a 7th grade student about to be expelled for bullying and abuse at school choose to walk away from a confrontation instead of fighting. When I asked what happened, she told me it must be because of what she was learning in the EQ program.

- Middle School Teacher

I enjoy school again!

I like coming to school now.

- Student

GoEQ saved my marriage!

The GoEQ Curriculum has changed my life as a teacher. My marriage wasn’t doing well. As I taught the program, I realized maybe it was because of my emotional intelligence or lack of it. I started trying to put principles I was learning as I taught into practice at home. Life is so much better now.

Frequently Asked Quesions


Which grades are best suited for the High School Curriculum?

We’ve chosen to label the High School curriculum as a whole to accommodate for multigrade high school situations. While high school incorporates grades 9–12, we recommend using the High School Curriculum in grades 9 or 10. Choosing to use it in higher grade classrooms would depend on the emotional and academic level of your students.
