Being LIFE READY means students leave high school with the grit and perseverance to tackle and achieve their goals by demonstrating personal actualization skills of self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, responsible decision making, and relationship skills.

Students who are LIFE READY possess the growth mindset that empowers them to approach their future with confidence, to dream big and to achieve big.

Our nation’s schools provide social and emotional support and experiences to equip students with life skills to succeed in the present and in the future.

While little research exists in the LIFE READY realm, AASA and the Redefining Ready! campaign are currently studying how to best measure these life ready skills.
