Brewster Academy is the only boarding school in the world partnering with the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. Over the past five years, our aim has been to develop a skills-based approach to social and emotional learning to enhance and round out the Brewster Model.
The RULER approach teaches students the skills and tools they need to recognize, understand, label, express, and regulate emotions. Generous support from foundations and individuals have helped make this program a reality, but we are seeking continued support for program development, faculty training, and ongoing research.
We know that emotions impact everything that we do. Emotions impact attention, memory and learning; personal relationships; decision-making; and physical and mental health. Simply put, your gift will help us better serve our students, and send more emotionally literate leaders into society.
