Parent News

A family’s choice to send their child to Summit Academy will be an important one, and one that demonstrates their high hopes and expectations of their child, themselves, and us.  We share those dreams, and are committed to making them a reality as we prepare each scholar for college and the world beyond. 


WAYS YOU CAN BE INVOLVED


Family Achievement Council (FAC)


Once a month, parents of Summit Academy scholars meet at the school.  During these meetings, parents discuss the state of the school, services provided to scholars, and plan activities for the staff, scholars, and parents of the school. These meetings are generally held the first Saturday Academy of each month.


Parent University

Parent University sessions are held in conjunction with Family Achievement Council meetings. During these session, school staff or guest speakers present important information that equips parents to be support their scholar's academic growth. A range of topics are covered during the academic year, including transitioning your fifth grader to middle school, preparing your scholar for standardized tests, increasing your scholar's joy in reading, etc..

Parent Conferences & Open Houses


​Approximately 3 times per year, parents will be formally invited to attend parent conferences or open houses at the school.  These meetings allow parents to meet with individual teachers and to come to the school to see scholar work. Families are also invited to attend showcase performances of the Enrichment Arts Programs.

Advisory Calls

Each week, the advisor of a Summit Academy scholar calls the family at home.  Parents should use this weekly method of communication as a venue to ask questions and clarification about issues affecting their scholars.  This is also a venue through which parents can stay informed of their scholar’s ongoing academic record and information regarding their behavior at school.

Scholars with parents who are involved in their school tend to have fewer behavioral problems and better academic performance, and are more likely to complete high school than scholars whose parents are not involved in their school.
