IS SUMMIT RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?
Summit Makes Sense for Students who:
Our faculty is trained in a variety of specialized methods to address difficulties in reading, math and written language: The PhonoGraphix®, Lindamood-Bell®, Orton-Gillingham®, Wilson®, EmPOWER® and a standards-based problem-solving approach to math.
Research-based methodologies are used to teach all subjects. Students learn organizational strategies and self-advocacy skill to develop ownership of their own learning. We pride ourselves on strong home-school communication and attention to every detail of learning.
Technology instruction is integrated across the curriculum with specific skill competencies assigned to each grade level. Personal and school laptops are used in many classes for group and individual projects. A 1:1 iPad program is in place for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
New students are accepted on a rolling admissions basis. Applications can be submitted throughout the year. Making the decision to apply to The Summit School is an important step in helping your child achieve academic success. Here are a few steps to follow once you’re ready to begin your journey with The Summit School.
The Summit School does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational, admissions, or hiring practices.
At The Summit School we are committed to accepting one another. Acceptance includes sensitivity to differences in learning, and to the many ways in which children and families are unique. The Summit School is founded upon the core values of dignity, respect and trust. We accept and respect differences in economic resources, culture and race, ethnicity, faith and belief, gender and age, and sexual orientation.

Information sent by the referring school district office is reviewed to determine if basic admissions criteria are met. The information sent typically includes psychological and educational assessments, the student’s IEP, school transcripts and parent contact information.
