The Secular Student Alliance Guide for Educators
This website is an educator's guide to atheist, humanist, and other nontheistic students in high schools.
The purpose of this page is to help educators support and understand nontheistic students and their needs. We have assembled pages to help inform and to put high school educators, leaders, and potential leaders in touch with the assistance and resources they need.
- What it means to be a nontheistic student
- Getting resources and more information
- Why high schools need to have secular groups represented
- Resources for SSA affiliate group advisors
While we feel that it is neither necessary nor appropriate for adults to label children, it is important to be aware of these labels and identities which students may choose for themselves. In today's culture of pluralism and multiple identities, the need for informed, understanding educators is greater than ever.
The Secular Student Alliance works to organize, unite, educate, and serve students and student communities that promote the ideals of scientific and critical inquiry, democracy, secularism, and human-based ethics. You can learn more about the Alliance and our work at our About page. If you have any other questions or wish to seek direct help, contact our High School Specialist. If you suspect your school is treating atheist students unfairly, fill out this form to directly request assistance.
Our sincerest thanks go out to the brights at The Brights Net for helping make this project possible.
