Summit Academy admits children who have difficulty listening, speaking, reading, writing or thinking, despite adequate intelligence, conventional instruction, and appropriate socio-cultural opportunities. These difficulties may be the result of a learning disorder or other learning difference.

New admissions should be of appropriate age for placement in Pre-K through ninth grade. The Head of School may, at his discretion, offer families admission for their student on a trial basis, not to exceed one school year. Every student’s progress is reviewed yearly to determine if they should continue at Summit Academy, or are ready to return to a conventional school setting.

Summit Academy does not admit children whose primary disorder is behavioral or emotional.
