In grades Kindergarten - 3rd grade, placement is determined by reading. Using a complete literacy program, parents are trained in how to use the curriculum, and how to differentiate lessons for their children. Teachers support student learning by supplying a syllabus, unit plans and grade sheets, being available to parents as teacher mentors, offering guidance and mini-trainings throughout the year on "what's coming down the line" and holding unit tests in class.
Using a logic-based classical curriculum, students will learn all of their letters and sounds, phonics, handwriting and cursive and grammar, eventually reading chapter books with fluency. (Parent work will consist of 20 minutes a day of reading and 2-3 lessons a week. Class work will consist of 1-2 lessons a week and assessments/reading support when parents request.
Students will learn all of their numbers, fundamental principles and operations, and build skills to recognize patterns using manipulatives and workbooks. This is a spiraling, mastery-based curriculum that is strong in meta-cognition. (Parent work will consist of 2 lessons a week that take approximately 20-40 minutes each.)
Students will be introduced to all science disciplines in Kindergarten, and then focus on a single discipline each year thereafter. All work and labs are completed in class. (There is no parent work to do at home).
In grades 4 - 9, placement is determined according to the students' current math level. Summit values student confidence over student achievement and accomplishes this by using common-sense curriculum and cultivating a supportive community of learners and educators. Lessons are integrated with science, english and literature. Teachers support at home learning by supplying a syllabus, unit plans and grade sheets, being available to parents as teacher mentors, offering guidance and mini-trainings
Using a logic-based classical curriculum, students will learn grammar, literature, writing and speaking. Beginning in Fables and climbing to Thesis Writing, students will learn fluency in comprehension and literary analysis.

Students will learn elementary math - Geometry. This is a spiraling, mastery-based curriculum that is strong in meta-cognition. (Parent work will consist of 2 lessons a week that take approximately 20-40 minutes each in grades 4-5. In grades 6+, parents need to support students in completing 1-2 hours a week of homework.)
Students will focus on a single discipline each year. For the '23-'24 school year, students will learn Chemistry. Grades 1-5 will learn Grammar stage Chemistry, grades 6-8 will learn Logic stage Chemistry and grades 9+ will learn Highschool Chemistry. This will streamline and unify homework for families with multiple students. All labs are completed in class. (Parent work consists of supporting homework. Grades 4-5 have no homework, grades 6-8 have approx. 30 minutes a week and grades 9+ have ap
