UPDATE 6/1/20: Summit will offer ALL virtual camps this summer.

Summit Schools has made the decision to keep ALL summer camps virtual this summer to best ensure the safety of students and staff. We regret we cannot host in-person camps on our Summit campus this summer, and will transfer existing registrations to any of our virtual camps, tutoring program, or issue a full refund. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this pandemic.

Summit’s summer academic camps are going online for the month of June! Take your reading, writing, and comprehension skills to the next level! Join our intensive and focused program for students in need of a boost in reading and writing, critical thinking, and creativity in language arts. Students will be placed by their academic level in small groups of 2-3 to participate in Zoom conference calls 30 minutes per day. Teachers are trained in the Orton-Gillingham method, a high-quality instructional approach intended primarily for students who struggle with reading, spelling, and writing.

Summit is already preparing for school in the fall – whatever that may look like – and is still accepting registrations for PreK-8th grade if you are looking for a small school with personalized education that can easily transition to online learning if/when needed. Summit has also responded to these uncertain economic times by reducing tuition to make this experience more affordable for local families. Please email info@summitschools.org for more information.
