The typical student we cconsider for Summit Preparatory School is experiencing difficulties with school, family, and often peers. Generally, this is a teen (ages14-18) who has done well in the past, and whose family has watched him or her struggle more and more with life demands, despite the obvious potential for meeting these expectations. Often, the student has had little success in individual therapy, and may display a growing uncomfortable acceptance of “failing” in academic and emotional struggles.
The intent of our admissions process is to determine whether Summit Prep can meet the needs of your teen and your family. Often times, families find it helpful to connect with an Educational Consultant to help direct them to appropriate types of programs.
