Our students have struggled to succeed in more traditional school settings and need an individualized approach to help them feel confident and comfortable as they embark on this next chapter in their lives. While some of our students’ needs can be met within the day program, others require a more wrap-around approach. Our residential students continue to need a therapeutic milieu during non-school hours and benefit from structured activities, a built-in structure to non-school hours, and support to navigate their social worlds.
The ascent from childhood to adulthood is riddled with challenges. To students with social and emotional difficulties, the potential pitfalls may seem impossible to overcome. These students deserve the support of a specialized school and community to offer comfort, instill confidence, and deliver consistent support during these difficult times.
"I would tell parents to expect for me to never give up on their child. They should expect a leader who will ensure that their child will receive the best experience possible while at Summit."Tiffany Reid - Director of Residential Programming
