College Readiness

Four Elements of College Readiness


Student success in college and career must extend far beyond college acceptance. At Summit, we focus on helping students to develop in four areas that form the foundation for a lifetime of success.


Cognitive Skills

Developing the deeper learning, critical thinking, communication and problem-solving skills needed to succeed in today and tomorrow’s workforce.


Content Knowledge

Engaging students in personalized learning, filling learning gaps & moving students towards competency in all subject-areas.


Expeditions

Immersing students in real-world experiences to help them discover and explore passions and careers, and apply their learning in authentic ways.


Habits of Success

Empowering students to engage in self-directed learning and develop key habits that are invaluable for college and life success.


We Will Help You Get to College

 

Summit Olympus is supported by the Summit Public Schools Office of College Readiness. They continuously update college.summitps.org with college application and financial aid information. Check it out!

Though we will go over all of this information with your students and go on multiple college trips throughout the year, it is important that all members of the family understand that all courses, grades, and curricular activities factor into admission decisions later down the line. Here are the most important priorities for you and your student to cover during their 9th and 10th grade years.

For more information about college readiness at Summit Olympus, check out college.summitps.org. Here you can find consolidated resources from Summit’s College Readiness Director about the path your students will take to be prepared. This site also has additional useful college information.
