A Message from the Counselors
Summit Academy's counseling program fosters values that enable our youth to understand themselves and others. We encourage students to assume personal responsibility for their behavior, as well as for their intellectual growth and development in keeping with their talents and abilities.
Our curriculum is geared to the physical and mental development of the adolescent. The counselors make an effort to see all students at various times during the school year. Our counselors are experienced teachers with expertise in various specialized areas. The department offers guidance primarily in academics. In addition, counselors can help students gain information about careers and colleges, scholarships, and financial aid for higher education.
