Summit Academy Community School – Parma

Summit Academy Parma serves children in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our school is committed to providing quality education to children with social and learning disorders such as Autism, ADD, ADHD, and Asperger’s. We aim to create a therapeutic, soothing environment where students receive the attention and care they need to thrive. We have small class sizes with only 15 -18 students per classroom, and each is staffed with a Highly Qualified Teacher and Instructional Assistant. The small class sizes allow our instructors to have one on one time with each students to better understand their way of learning and their needs. In most cases, there are two HQT teachers in the classroom co-teaching. We have a team of highly qualified staff members including:

  • Literacy Coach
  • Speech Therapist
  • IEP Coordinator
  • Behavioral Specialist
  • Licensed School Counselor

Provide For The Whole Child

At Summit Academy we understand that students need to have a well rounded life in order to thrive academically. All students receive Art, Music, Physical Education and Martial Arts throughout the school year. We also have many events that involve the students’ families to further integrate family with their education. These events include:

  • PTST Family Potluck
  • Talent Show
  • Holiday Craft Fair
  • Open House
