Edmentum, a global education leader and pioneer in online teaching and learning solutions has partnered with BASE Education, the foremost developer of evidence-based social-emotional learning (SEL) courseware that is aligned to the CASEL competencies.

Edmentum is dedicated to supporting this mission and embracing social-emotional instruction as foundational to learning for all students. As education embraces the whole learner, 21st-century jobs demand a higher degree of emotional intelligence, and students are faced with new ways of learning never before experienced, the need to develop social-emotional skills and identify trauma-based impediments to learning is critical.

“Now more than ever, academic success is most likely when students’ social-emotional needs are met first. Proactively addressing all students’ mental health is a key component to long-term wellness and academic readiness,” said Jamie Candee, Edmentum CEO. “This new partnership with BASE Education reinforces Edmentum’s commitment to supporting the whole learner by delivering a research-based framework that pairs academic and social-emotional competencies. BASE Education helps educators gain a more complete understanding of their students’ circumstances and helps students build coping skills and general SEL awareness that they can take with them throughout life.”

Edmentum is committed to making it easier for educators to individualize learning for every student through research-based, engaging digital curriculum and assessments. BASE Education uses evidence-based practices derived from clinical foundations, including Cognitive Behavioral Frameworks, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical-Behavioral Theories, Strengths-Based Approaches, Brief Solution-Focused Theories, Mindfulness, and Person-Centered Approaches.

This powerful partnership ensures that the whole learner is fully supported both emotionally and academically.

“BASE Education was founded as a mission-driven organization to help students deal with complicated challenges and achieve wellness,” stated Robin Glenn, CEO and Founder of BASE Education. “In Edmentum, we’ve found an equally mission-driven partner sincerely dedicated to improving student outcomes in the classroom and in life.”
