“Of the dozens of after-school programs, why is Summit so special?” Summit uses A. V.I.P. approach to help the students we serve. Here are the key ingredients that set us apart:
Academics - all programs at Summit are based on improving academic skills. Tutors receive ongoing support from program directors so they can help their student improve and foster a vision of success at an early age. On average, students at Summit improve by more than one grade level in Math and Reading each year they attend Summit.
Virtues - practical, virtue-based character lessons includes the discussion of a virtue each week, followed by setting daily goals help students acquire good habits and provide focus.
Individual Attention - each student is paired with his or her own tutor/mentor, and they meet each week to study, set goals, and play sports. The friendship, incentives, and accountability they receive motivate each student to improve.
Parental Involvement - we host parent seminars and meetings with the tutors to help parents, as the primary educators of their children, to have a better understanding of how to help their children succeed.
So, you see, Summit is SPECIAL. Spread the word.
