Summit School of the Poconos announces Summit Charter School

In an effort to increase accessibility for parents and students to the Summit School educational program, and thereby provide a greater impact on the community at large, the founders and board members of Summit School of the Poconos have decided to pursue Charter School Status, thereby creating Summit Charter School. A charter application has been filed with the Pocono Mountain School District.

*Appendix F. Pre Enrollment Data and Appendix H. Founding Coalition are not included here as PDF documents because they contain personal information of founding coalition members and pre-enrolled parents/students such as names, grade levels and birthdates of students, phone numbers and addresses, etc. While this information may technically be considered public record, Summit School did not feel it appropriate to share this personal information on its website.
