Welcome to the Summit School and Children's Residence Center.
We are now celebrating thirty years of excellence serving adolescents with learning and adjustment problems.
At Summit, we are proud of the many achievements and accolades that have been associated with our program.
Since 1974, the critical success we have had with thousands of students has continuously elevated our goals to loftier heights.
Summit School has built an impeccable reputation as the finest residential school for children with adjustment difficulties.
We provide a 24-hour a day program of therapy, education, and social support.
With a focus on success in all realms of treatment, Summit staff members foster the intellectual, social and emotional growth of all of their students.
At Summit, we uncover the potential obscured by the problems often associated with adolescence.
By connecting with others in a warm but structured environment, students break old cycles of failure and open themselves optimistically to new experiences, responsibilities, and relationships that enrich their lives, and ensure their smooth transition back to community and family life.

We first heard of Steppingstones through people saying great things at our parish and from parents in other playgroups in the area. I live close by but unless you go at 9am or noon-ish, from a drive you will miss seeing the heart of this vibrant school. My son Parker is now in Step 1 at Steppingstones and loves it!! And I am thrilled with the focus, attention and care his teachers are providing for him. His developmental growth over the past year has been in large part due to their care and attention. In comparison to the other places I reviewed, it also had the best student/child ratio. The students in his class are great and I'm happy he is getting to learn and begin connecting with classmates he'll likely have for years to come. As a relative newcomer to Stow, it has also really helped in getting me acquainted in town. The school is a tremendous asset for our community and I look forward to our daughter Sarah starting there in the near future!

Steppingstones has provided a wonderful introduction to school for my children. The staff members are warm and encouraging, and they have made both of my children feel very comfortable as they enter the school system. The curriculum is appropriate for the youngest students through kindergarten and is fresh and interesting. The staff is adaptable to the different ways students learn and encouraging to parents in these circumstances. The communication between director and parents is regular and informative. The friendships made by both the children and parents are another attribute of this school that makes it a special place to learn and grow. I look forward to sending my youngest two children there as well.

What is really important in choosing a private school? Ranks? Academics? Financial aid? Sports programs? Arts programs? One of these criteria doesn't matter. The others do.
