*In order to best mitigate COVID-19, virtual meetings are currently being scheduled. Parents can ask to visit the school on an individual basis.
If time and temperament allow, teachers will have your child participate in a short academic assessment during your visit in order to place your child at his/her academic level by subject. High academic scores are not a prerequisite to admission. Follow-up appointments for assessments not completed during a tour will be scheduled directly with a teacher.
We have found that students who may struggle in traditional educational environments can be successful at SSP as long as they have the support needed.
However, please note that private schools are not required, nor funded to provide special education services, as they often don’t have the resources or funding to support special education. Some special education needs will require support and resources above and beyond what SSP is able to provide and could result in the School's inability to provide an offer of enrollment to a student. Summit School is NOT a Special Education School.
If you are submitting an application, please elaborate on your child's needs so we can begin to work together from the start, ensuring every child's success.
