The Schoolwide SEL Advantage:
According to research by a team at Harvard Graduate School of Education, SEL is most effective when it’s schoolwide.
The Assistant Director of the EASEL Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Rebecca Bailey, describes schoolwide SEL as: “All the adults in the building being trained in and familiar with a set of language and practices that they can use in the hallways, in the gym, at recess, in the lunchroom, on the bus—all the times when kids have less structure and are actually engaging in social interactions when emotions are more likely to come up.”
That’s why we have created the first-ever SEL curriculum for all! When you subscribe, you get access to SEL instruction for every learner in the building, including support bundles for students needing Tier 1, 2, or 3 interventions.
If you can't get everyone onboard right away, that's okay too! Don't let getting it perfect stand in the way of getting started, some SEL is better than none at all!

We know cost matters. You shouldn't have to spend your valuable time searching for basic pricing information. Our mission is to support educators, not add stress to their lives. That's why we're committed to providing 100% transparency in our pricing upfront, no surprises.
You can purchase our SEL Curriculum in one of three ways:
Per license: If you have a small group of educators (1-10) teaching SEL to a small group of students (under 200), this option may be for you. You pay for the specific number of licenses you need. If you need to add more, you would pay for each additional license. Our individual licenses start at $399.99/license.
Site license: Site licenses are based on the number of students using the curriculum. With site licenses, you can give access to as many educators as you'd like, so long as they teach the students included in your student count. Our base site license pricing starts at 200 students. Site licenses are best for single schools, groups of schools, or entire districts.
In most situations, a site license is more cost-effective, flexible, and scalable than individual licenses.
Bundled Licenses: Are you working on both social skills and social-emotional learning? Get the best of both worlds with our Bundled License. This license is for educators who want access to both our Social Communication Curriculum (SCC) and SEL curriculum. It’s a good fit for educators who work in both small group and whole-class settings, supporting Tier 1, 2, and 3 learners.
Our SCC curriculum will support your learners who need direct instruction to meet pragmatic language goals, while our SEL Curriculum provides foundational skills for all learners.
Bundled Licenses start at $599.99/license, a $200 savings over buying each curriculum individually.
Purchasing the Everyday Speech Curriculum is easy!
The first step is to generate a quote. You can do this over the phone or via self-checkout.
The phone option might be for you if you want to talk through pricing or licensing options and/or if you're looking for a more personalized checkout experience.
The self-checkout option is for you if you already know what license you want and are ready to purchase.
How to Generate Your Quote Over the Phone:
1. Schedule a time to meet with your Customer Experience (CX) Specialist. They will walk you through our pricing options and help you choose the best license for your situation.
Let your CX Specialist know about any accommodations you may need to get the quote for the license approved. This includes things like:
- Do you need a specific billing date on the quote?
- Do you need additional documents like a W-9, sole source letter, privacy agreement, funding paperwork, etc.?
We are happy to assist you and answer any questions.
2. After you select a license, your CX Specialist will send you a quote. If anything changes (e.g. you want to update your learner count), let us know and we will be happy to update the quote for you.
How to Generate a Quote Using Self-Checkout:
Go to our sign-up page and click “Get a Quote” under your desired curriculum option. From there, you will be prompted to enter details like the classroom setting and learner count to generate a quote.
For both quote generating options, phone and self-checkout, the next step will be to send us your purchase order and user list (which includes the names and emails of the educators who will need access to the curriculum).
How to submit your Purchase Order:
