At Summit Academy we use a diagnostic, prescriptive approach in order to design instruction. Children are grouped for math and literacy instruction based on their current level of achievement and rate of learning. Once instructional groups are formed, curriculum materials are selected. We teach children with a variety of learning needs, therefore a broad array of instructional resources are utilized.
