MASK E3 Institute begins in kindergarten and continues through college, children are educated through the MASK E3 Institute at a developmentally age-appropriate level on a wide variety of topics such as bullying, peer pressure, self-esteem, alcohol and substance use/abuse, communication, and technology safety etc. The E3 Institute includes MASK Academy (K-6th grade), MASK Prep (middle and high school), MASK Leadership (college) and Parent University.
The MASK E3 Institute approach aims to build social and emotional skills in children while helping the school create a positive climate and atmosphere in a manner that helps teachers and school administrators meet educational standards. A school-wide approach on positive social-emotional skills creates an educational environment that prepares children to be “ready to learn”. This customized curriculum is based on contemporary trends as it relates to the challenges faced by today’s youth and their families. Our goal is to improve school climate, build healthy children, and strengthen parent-child bonds through psychoeducational information, E3 lessons, classroom-based reinforcement activities, and education on current trending topics through the MASK E3 Institute and MASK The Magazine.
