Summit School of the Poconos is no longer operational, as of July 2022. All Summit team efforts are currently focused on building Summit Charter School. This site remains active to provide information about the educational model upon which the Summit Charter School is based.
Summit School of the Poconos provides a movement-rich, project-based environment, grounded in shared governance, where students demonstrate an active voice and ownership in their education.
Summit School of the Poconos will be an innovative education hub for Northeast Pennsylvania, sharing its practice with positive change makers in local and national education. Here, educators are empowered to create responsive curricula and meaningful learning experiences in a student-centered environment. Through a unique approach built upon shared governance, students are encouraged to responsibly contribute to their school community and assume ownership in their education and learning experiences. By applying these combined practices, we will graduate motivated, civically-engaged citizens who uniquely contribute to our world and future.
