What is Calm Classroom?

Calm Classroom is a Tier 1 mindfulness-based SEL program for Pre-K through 12th-grade students. Our program helps school communities manage stress and achieve emotional well-being through the use of 3-minute research-based, scripted mindfulness practices delivered in the classroom.

We are currently one of the largest providers of mindfulness-based educational programming in the United States, and our non-profit has served over 100,000 teachers and upwards of 2.5 million students. Below are a few of the districts that have used the Calm Classroom program as part of their overall SEL strategy:

Simple, Sustainable, and Impactful

Simple to Learn and Teach

Our scripted mindfulness techniques can be read aloud or played through audio & video recordings, and are easy to learn and master with minimal training.

Fits Into Regular Schedules

Calm Classroom is designed to fit easily into classroom transitions, short breaks, or private counseling sessions. This lets us accommodate busy teacher schedules while improving program fidelity.

Supports Teacher Well-Being & Self-Care

Whether it's stress reduction, emotional regulation, or simple relaxation, teachers consistently rate Calm Classroom as effective for themselves, as well as their students.

Convenient & Cost-Effective Professional Development

Our condensed PD modules can take place during normal staff meetings, on professional development or early release days, or at other times that are already allocated in your school's budget.

Calm Classroom Testimonials

“I have seen many programs come and go in the Chicago Public Schools and Calm Classroom is one of the few that I embrace with my whole heart. It is intentional, well researched, and consistent. The message is simple and elegant. It works.”

“The few, but powerful, minutes of Calm Classroom every morning and afternoon are some of the most meaningful, stress-free moments in each of our school days.”

“I believe Calm Classroom has helped the overall environment of the classroom. It keeps me calm when I feel rushed or stressed and makes me recognize my own emotions. I think the students feel better when they have a chance to take a breath and relax their mind.”

“I teach students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. To watch my students execute Calm Classroom is absolutely AMAZING! It REALLY helps them  regulate their frustrations and anxieties.”

Calm Classroom has changed the whole dynamic of my classroom. My children are able to self-regulate their emotions more easily.”
