How It Works (K-8)

Summit Academy is a tuition-free online homeschool program that uses the cutting edge 21st century curriculum, which can be accessed online and through a variety of traditional methods. Instructional materials are delivered both online and directly to families, and include books, CDs, and even bags of rocks and dirt (for science experimentation, of course).

Highly qualified, credentialed teachers work with their students to review lessons and assessments, and to guide and support  students and learning coaches through the program. Teachers, parents, and students meet on a regular basis in person and online to evaluate progress and provide additional enhancement learning opportunities

Student-to-student and peer interaction is emphasized through our regularly scheduled field trips, excursions and fieldwork and other learning opportunities.
