Summit Learning is a personalized approach to teaching and learning.

It is a way for students to unlock the power within themselves to live fulfilled and successful lives.

The Power of Summit Learning

Summit Learning gives every student:

  • Support from a caring mentor
  • Life skills that they can apply to real-world situations
  • An ability to use self-direction to develop self-confidence, understand their own strengths and weaknesses, and prepare themselves for life after graduation

The Impact

Summit Learning has fundamentally changed the way teachers, students, school leaders, and families experience education. It has turned children who weren't excited about school into ones who can't stop talking about it the moment they leave the classroom. It helps them the understand what they are learning, why they are learning and how they learn best. Students can advocate for themselves, know their passions and interests, and have a long-term goal and plan rooted in these passions and interests. All while vastly improving test scores and college-acceptance rates.

See how real teachers, educators, and students are reacting to this new way of thinking about education.

The Summit Learning Program

The Summit Learning Program is a free program that provides schools across the U.S. with the tools, resources, and training they need to implement the instructional approach in a way that meets each community's individual needs, values, and vision.

Our Community is Growing

The Summit Learning Program started off as a small pilot at Summit Public Schools with only 19 schools in 2015. Today, it serves more than 380 schools, nearly 3,800 educators, and more than 72,000 students across the U.S. This community continues to grow - as does the team working in support of it. We believe the Program is ready to succeed as its own nonprofit organization, beginning in 2019-20 school year.
