Summit Academy is committed to a therapeutic school model focused on small class size, differentiated small group instruction, multimodal learning experiences, and therapeutic support. Each multi-age classroom of 12 students is staffed by two certified teachers and an instructional aide.
Our 198 day school year begins in August, and runs through the end of June - following the public school calendar. Summer Enrichment programs are offered during the month of July. High quality academics are based on the Common Core and Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, and are assessed throughout the year using the nationally normed NWEA MAP Test.
In addition to the integrated curriculum, our academic programming includes:
Art can be therapeutic for students, as it gives them a low-risk, high-reward subject to express themselves and explore ideas.
Introducing Martial Arts fundamentals and core values aid in the promotion of social-emotional, mental and physical growth of our students.
New to Summit Academy is our Technology Lab - including the implementation of our STEM programs! Our students are able to see their designs come to life in the form of a 3-D printed object!
