Message From Our Founder
Summit Academy Charter School bridges the gap between aspirations and realities by preparing 6th through 12th grade scholars to gain acceptance to, excel in and graduate from college by using three pillars of success: mastery of core subjects, character building, and community leadership.
By engaging scholars with an academically rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum and supporting them in a community focused on high academic achievement and strong character building, Summit Academy will prepare our young people to participate meaningfully in the greater economy and expand their choices and opportunities.
Summit Academy develops academic excellence, instills character, and cultivates leadership. Our academic program and college preparatory curriculum are structured to accomplish two goals:
- Student acquisition and mastery of basic literacy, numeracy, and writing skills.
- Student application of basic skills to synthesize, analyze, apply, and make inferences about content that is more challenging and complex.
Staff, students, families, and the community are involved in the educational process to create a safe, supportive environment where students are motivated to learn and believe that success is attainable. Everyone honors and respects the difference and uniqueness of each individual while developing a sense of responsibility toward themselves, their school community, and the community at large.
