Get Real High School

Comprehensive Sex Education That Works

Now in an updated second edition, Get Real High School is a comprehensive evidence-informed sexuality education curriculum developed by Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts that empowers students in grades 9 and 10 to delay sex and protect themselves from pregnancy and STIs. There is also a 3-year, evidence-based Get Real Middle School curriculum.

 The Get Real program:

  • Emphasizes social and emotional skills as key components of healthy relationships and responsible decision making.
  • Promotes abstinence from sex as a safe and healthy choice for high school students and provides a comprehensive understanding of sexual health, sexuality and protection methods.
  • Supports parents and other caring adults as the primary sexuality educators of their teens with take-home family activities that encourage dialogue between students and the caring adults in their lives.
  • Is developmentally appropriate, inclusive of LGBTQ+ youth, trauma informed, and aligned to the National Health Education Standards using the CDC's Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool.

The high school component can be delivered as a stand-alone curriculum of 11 lessons, but it is most effective as a follow-up to Get Real Middle School.

Get Real also offers scheduled regional training events to help educators replicate and implement Get Real with fidelity. Training includes pre-work in the form of a self-paced, online course (approximately 10 to 12 hours over 3 weeks); two-day, in-person skill-based instruction with a Get Real trainer; technical assistance follow-up sessions; and access to the Get Real Educator Resource Center.
