After School Activities

After school activities are an important part of community life at Summit Academy.  They offer an opportunity for our students to explore their talents and interests while having a place to practice social and teamwork skills. The team sports and activities we offer vary depending on students’ abilities, needs and preferences. Therefore, club offerings are subject to change each school year.

Below is a list of frequent and/or currently offered clubs. Feel free to contact school administration or club sponsors to express interest in a particular club. This page will be updated periodically as additional activities open for registration.
