The Summit School campus is closed through the end of the school year. While our campus is closed, The Summit School and Summit Resource Center are still operating. We remain available and ready to respond to your needs and, as always, your inquiries are welcome.

Be Summit Smart – Summer Learning Opportunities – Registration Open – Camp Starts July 6

Here’s what you need to know to make the most of your summer. Be Summer Smart. Click for a Camp Flyer.

Summer slide – learning loss that comes from time spent out of school – began this winter. Almost without notice schools needed to close their campuses and switch to remote learning. Educators and parents scrambled to find ways to work from home and facilitate remote learning for their children, with many households juggling more than one remote learning platform.

Now that students have been learning remotely for months, some with more success than others, summer slide takes on a whole new meaning. It’s more like the spring and summer slide. The Summit Resource Center, well-known for its summer academic programming, is pleased to offer a variety of summer learning opportunities including: Camp Summit, Specialty Camps and 1:1 tutoring.

Summer at Summit 2020 will surely look different! We are very excited to offer academic enrichment to families who recognize that summer is still a time for learning, especially since so many children had remote learning experiences that may not have fully addressed their academic needs.  Whether your child needs to brush up on core skills in preparation for the next grade level or review content from the previous school year, the Summit Resource Center offerings can help.

The health, safety and well-being of our students, teachers and staff is our highest priority; therefore, Summit’s Summer Camp in July will be offered remotely. The delivery of our Specialty Camps (the EmPOWER™ and Executive Functions), will be evaluated as the situation evolves and the science and experts determine what is needed for social distancing. Tutoring is being offered virtually, but as information becomes available, it may be possible to tutor in person with appropriate social distancing.

CAMP SUMMIT – Camp Summit Remote Learning is for students who need academic support. Students will be placed based on current grade level, skills and ability levels. Placement screenings will be held in late June, either in-person, or virtually, depending upon safety restrictions.
