Accessibility Statement

The Summit Country Day School follows all building and website guidelines under Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We periodically evaluate our website and structures to ensure our facilities are accessible for people with disabilities, such as people with wheelchairs or crutches.

ADA and Public Accommodation: Under Title III of the ADA, The Summit Country Day School prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities.

ADA and Employment: The Summit Country Day School follows the ADA and the Civil Rights Act. We do not discriminate on the basis of employment and will provide a reasonable accommodation if requested. These accommodations include (but aren't limited to) the physical configuration of the workspace and work structure or routine. 

ADA and Website Access: The Summit Country Day School is committed to ensuring accessibility of its website for students, parents, and members of the community with disabilities. Our long-term plan is to have all pages on the Summit Country Day School website conform to the W3C WAI’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA, or updated equivalents of these guidelines. Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make your browsing experience more accessible:

If you have trouble seeing The Summit’s web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience.

  • Use your computer to read web pages out loud
  • Use the keyboard to navigate screens
  • Increase text size
  • Magnify your screen
  • Change background and text colors
  • Make your mouse pointer more visible (Windows only)

If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.

Closed Captioning: Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of ADA’s video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.

Volume Controls: Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
