Milestones

At some point in our lives, we’ve all been to graduations; either participating or watching proudly as someone we love is honored for their achievements. And from preschool through college, they all have some things in common.

But Summit Graduations hold a special element that is difficult to put into words.

Many of these eighth graders have been in classes together since kindergarten. They have watched each other grow and change. The teachers have done so much more than teach them, they have helped raise them. They have assisted them in overcoming challenges and fears and watched as they grew into unique and promising young people.

This year’s graduation was unprecedented in the history of Summit Academy. For the first time, we aren’t saying goodbye to all of our eighth grade class. Many of the students in this class have chosen to stay at Summit for the inaugural year of our High School.

But for some, this is goodbye. Summit Academy has given them the foundation needed to continue their education at other schools of their choosing.

Regardless of the paths they have chosen, we wish them the absolute best on their journey to adulthood.
