School Description:
Our Mission The mission of The Summit Preparatory School is to prepare learners for success by providing a progressive education in a uniquely challenging and supportive environment. Our Vision Inspire life-long learners. Our Philosophy The Summit is a small, progressive, independent school that cares beyond the completion of required courses to the development and future of the whole child, teaching not only the skills for academic success, but more importantly how to overcome challenges, solve problems, and pursue lifelong achievement.
We believe the following qualities are important for success in college and in life. These qualities are developed over the long term. Intellectual Curiosity: Developing a passion for lifelong learning, joy of learning, asking why, pursuing passions, finding connections, and embracing diversity in all of its forms Critical Thinking: Challenging assumptions and orthodoxies, creative problem solving, tackling open ended problems and taking on the unknown Growth Mindset: Recognizing successes and failures as an outcome of effort rather than a reflection of a person’s immutable self Independence: Being self-reliant, responsible, self-aware, self-disciplined, and on the path to self discovery Connected: Able to succeed as a member of a team and a community, demonstrating leadership and stewardship, being of service to those in need, and tackling social responsibility
