Summit Information

About Summit


Summit Learning Center is a trauma-informed alternative school that provides individualized academic and social/emotional support and resources to a diverse group of learners. Summit provides services for special education students who have not been successful at their home school despite interventions, support and resources provided. Summit provides a therapeutic school setting in which students are prepared to be successful members of their community upon graduation.




We will create an environment where students are inspired to improve their academics, attendance, and character. We want 100% of our students to fulfill their goals of earning a high school diploma or certificate and ensuring post-secondary success.




Recognizing that students have individual needs and learning styles, DELTA and SUMMIT provide a safe and supportive learning environment. We empower students to choose a path toward success in post-secondary education, training, and employment through
Goal setting and development of individual strengths and interests.
