In addition to an enriched English and Social Studies program, they have opportunities to participate in extra curricular sports, English competitions, field trips and service projects. They will work through an accelerated Science program which includes a science fair project in all three years of the program and will take the Science 10 provincial exam at the end of grade 9 then study Chemistry 11 in grade 10. It is also possible for them to accelerate their Math if they have an appropriate skill level.  We are currently exploring the use of digital collaborative tools in English and Science including an internet forum to prepare our students for the 21st century.

Summit is a three year program with the goals of high academic achievement, community service and a demonstrable involvement in the wider school community.  All students are expected to attain the bronze level of the Duke of Edinburgh award by grade 10.
