• Summit Academy is committed to a therapeutic school model focused on small class size, differentiated small group instruction, multi-modal learning experiences, and therapeutic support. 

  • Each multi-age classroom of 12 students is staffed by two certified teachers and an instructional aide. 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. 

  • Social skills training takes place daily in the classroom setting, and is embedded in the school culture throughout the day. On-site behavior specialists, speech-language pathologists, and mental health counselors provide social and emotional support. Click to learn more about the Zones of Regulation.

  • Therapeutic martial arts address coordination, memory, self-regulation, and cross-body movement to create and strengthen connections in the brain. 

  • Art classes are held weekly!  Summit is proud to have a MA certified art teacher on staff.  

  • 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. 

  • Our small, nurturing environment has proven to be the ideal setting for our students to reach their full potential and to achieve their goals.
