Four Elements of College Readiness
Student success in college and career must extend far beyond college acceptance. At Summit, we focus on helping students to develop in four areas that form the foundation for a lifetime of success.
Developing the deeper learning, critical thinking, communication and problem-solving skills needed to succeed in today and tomorrow’s workforce.
Engaging students in personalized learning, filling learning gaps & moving students towards competency in all subject-areas.
Immersing students in real-world experiences to help them discover and explore passions and careers, and apply their learning in authentic ways.
Habits of Success
Empowering students to engage in self-directed learning and develop key habits that are invaluable for college and life success.
We Will Help You Get to College
Summit Rainier is supported by the Summit Public Schools Director of College Readiness, Kristin Hannon. Ms. Hannon continuously updates college.summitps.org with college application and financial aid information. Check it out!
Though we will go over all of this information with your students throughout their year and go on multiple college trips throughout the year, it is important that all members of the family understand that all courses, grades,and curricular activities factor into admission decisions later down the line. Here are the most important priorities for you and your student to cover during their 9th and 10th grade years.
