Raise the Standard

Challenging America’s youth to raise the standard.

Through engaging activities and inspiring true-to-life scenarios, Raise the Standard teaches elementary-age students how to manage some of the most trying and troubling aspects of pre-adolescence, including self-esteem, conflict resolution, peer pressure, honesty, etiquette and hygiene.  Raise the Standard is the “how-to” resource that teachers and parents have wanted for a long time and that children so desperately need.

Components

The Raise The Standard program is available in a Standard format. The comprehensive program includes:

  • Student Workbook
  • Teacher Classroom Manual
  • Comprehensive Teacher Training
  • Teacher Compliance Tool to monitor teachers’ delivery of curriculum
  • Online surveys and data collection to assist with program evaluation
  • End-of-Year Executive Reports summarizing student outcomes

Program Design

Raise the Standard puts the rhetoric of early intervention into live application by focusing on making a difference in the lives of elementary school students.  The program fits seamlessly into a home-school, classroom, after-school, summer camp, church, or community program as an elective course under personal social studies; can be adapted to complement existing programs, especially after-school programs.
