Amazing caring environment that changed my son's life for the better

Summit Academy is a progressive, academically-challenging school for bright kids who have diagnosed learning differences. My child has been saved academically by the small class size, individualized approach to teaching, and the caring staff. She has self-confidence that non-existent prior to Summit. She will be able to attend any high school in the area, public, private or parochial.

Summit Academy is an excellent school for any student who struggles with learning differences. My child was enrolled in an excellent private school, however, his academic needs were not being met and so I transferred him to Summit. Not only is he learning and thriving in the classes, his behavior, attitude and general happiness has improved in and out of school. The teachers and staff are experienced, caring, and extremely knowledgeable about the many different ways to teach the same concept to fit the learning needs of individual students. As a parent and an educator (working at a different school), I highly recommend Summit Academy as a school where every child truly does learn.

I highly recommend this school for children who learn differently! My child did not thrive in the public school arena, it was too large to tend to her needs. She is in an environment now that focuses on her, not a test score or curriculum. She is in drama, cheerleading, archery, and talent shows. She is thriving in math, a subject that is difficult for her but no longer daunting. Her advanced reading strengths are celebrated. She is confident and blossoming. The curriculum will have her prepared for a local private parochial high school that I would never have thought she could attend 5 years ago.
