We currently offer tutoring in reading, Orton-Gillingham, spelling, writing, basic math, algebra, geometry, homework help, study skills, and Spanish. Tutoring schedules are separated into two programs: Academic Year – From September to May and Summer – Eight weeks throughout June, July, and August. Sessions can occur between 8am and 7pm Monday-Friday. For questions and more information, please email Tutor Manager Christina Anderson.

At Summit we believe that learning doesn’t end at the classroom door! Our community is rich with cultural and educational opportunities for all children. Summit’s Learning Extensions Camps (In-Service Day Camps) offer children the unique opportunity to learn from dynamic professionals and artists in our local area and participate in project-based learning, which is a foundation of a Summit education. These camps are open to ALL children K-6th Grade in the local school districts with corresponding teacher professional development/in-service days. Summit appreciates its partnership with local organizations. These camps bring real world experiences and different perspectives to students. Join us!
