  Our Mission

Mission Statement:


Summit School of the Poconos will deliver a project-based curriculum within a democratic and movement-rich environment that will ready our students for a competitive, evolving workforce by fostering critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and collaboration.


Guiding principles established by our core beliefs will serve as the foundation for our mission statement.



Guiding Principles:


Summit School of the Poconos Core Beliefs:

Engaged, inspired students will foster a life-long love of learning.

The learning process should be valued as much as the results.

Learning is not only measured by the knowledge an individual possesses, but by a capability to apply it.

A competency-based education is more meaningful than a time-based education.

In order to compete in a global world, we must encourage:

critical thinking

creativity

innovation

collaboration



Vision Statement:


Summit School of the Poconos will represent, for its students, a scaled-down version of the larger world. Students will create, imagine, and explore while they learn in a meaningful way. They will learn to set goals, plan for goals, achieve goals, and collaborate with their peers and mentors. By teaching in a manner that embraces the twenty-first century, we will graduate students prepared to compete and work in a competitive, evolving workforce.
