Alumni Testimonials: What’s So Great About The Summit?

Summit graduates often tell faculty that they are well prepared for college because of the rigorous college preparatory curriculum in science and math as well as the emphasis on writing college-level research papers. The Summit experience -- grounded in the five pillars in our mission statement -- ensures that students have a well-rounded experience that helps them cope in college and in life. Many alumni parents and grandparents send their own children and grandchildren to The Summit. Here, some of our alumni offer their perspectives on The Summit in their own words.
