Reasons to Choose Summit
We understand that every student is different. That’s why we offer personalized curriculums to suit your individual learning style and needs. Our goal is to help each student succeed by tailoring our offerings and finding courses that work for them. This approach allows you to really dig into your interests and genuinely enjoy the learning process.
Our tailored approach focuses on guiding (rather than controlling) your learning. We celebrate our students as individuals and encourage them to become active participants in their schooling. Our teachers value your unique perspective and voice. At our academy, the playing field is leveled and you’re encouraged to share your ideas and express yourself.
Modern Learning Environment
SLC utilizes the latest in modern technology to deliver high-quality, collaborative courses in a robust and engaging virtual learning environment. Students gain hands-on experience with online tools and technology that represent growing trends in the professional world. In addition, students are encouraged to visit our in-person school sites for live classes, study halls, and enrichment courses to socialize and engage with their peers.
Focus and Attention
Many students who struggle in a traditional, one-size-fits-all schooling environment find that they really thrive in online classrooms. At SLC, students receive one-on-one tutoring and attention, and their learning is tailored to their unique needs and focused on helping them get the most out of their studies. Our teachers are dedicated, knowledgeable, and patient, and their goal is to help you succeed and grow in the learning process.
