From the Head of School...

Dear Summit School Community,

I want to begin by thanking every member of our community for this crazy, wonderful, and memorable school year. Today, we thanked our departing staff members including "the heart of Summit," Ms Andrea. I am sure we will see her on campus in the future, and the community that is Summit will continue her legacy of holding your children close to our hearts and helping them grow to be confident, happy, young adults.


As we wrap up, I have attached our end of the year academic data and FAQ. Please take a moment to look over the progress and challenges. All of our results will drive our instructional practices in the coming school year. Continue to watch for exciting opportunities ahead for growth in STEM, literacy, the arts, athletics, and Social Emotional Learning. I will keep the community updated throughout the summer on additions to our Summit School programming. Enjoy your summer and thank you for all you do.


Sincerely,


Dr. Stephanie Nardi

Head of School

New Tradition

Summit School started a new tradition today. We welcomed back our Summit School Alumni, who are graduating seniors, to lead our 8th grade clap out. It was great to see them, and great to give them an opportunity to see each other as a class again.

Congratulations to our alumni graduates of 2022.

Camp Invention Spots are Almost Full!

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Summit School is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention® program to children entering K through 6th grade. This exciting, weeklong summer adventure provides opportunities for open-ended, hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Rotating through a variety of exciting activities each day, children have fun collaborating with friends, thinking creatively and inventing their own solutions to real-world challenges.


The week begins on June 27, 2022. The all-new 2022 Explore program will thrill both new and returning campers with an expedition full of far-reaching explorations, fascinating discoveries and exhilarating “a-ha” moments!


During this dynamic, high-energy program, young innovators will:


• Dive into cutting-edge ocean research as they adopt their own robotic fish, design and

patent aquatic plants, and take their fish friend home in a mini tank.


• Discover real space exploration technology when they create Spacepacks and AstroArm devices, mine an asteroid and observe erupting ice volcanoes.


• Combine science and art to build their own robotic artist, engage in design thinking,

make spin art and learn how inventions can change the way people create.


• Experiment with the fun of physics, engineering and gaming as they design, build and

test their own mega marble arcades.


Early registration discounts available! Register using SUM15 by May 18 to save $15 off the $255 registration fee.


Availability is limited, so visit Camp Invention at Summit or call 800-968-4332 to secure your child’s spot today!
