Career Advising: Summit Academy partners with families, students, administrators and teachers to ensure each student has a plan for life beyond graduation. Each year staff will meet with students to discuss career, college and transition plans in order to better serve the student in relation to their goals. 

Transition Planning: All students at Summit Academy receive career advising at minimum one time annually. Students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) have a team of people who work with students and families to put plans into place for what happens after graduation. These transition plans include career, college, independent living, and life skills. 

College Credit Plus: Summit Academy Schools partner with local colleges and universities to offer students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to participate in college courses and earn college credit at little to no cost for families.Schools will provide families with all the information and documentation needed to proceed with the College Credit Plus pathway for students interested in working towards a degree. 

The ACT (American College Testing): All Summit Academy 11th grade students take the ACT free of charge. The ACT is a standardized test used for college admissions in the United States. The ACT test covers four academic skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and scientific reasoning. 

Credit Flex: Credit Flexibility allows students to earn units of high school credit and course credit based on an individually approved Credit Flexibility Plan. The intent of credit flexibility is to meet increased expectations for high school graduation in response to globalization, technology and demographics, and to meet the demand for 21st Century skills. 

Credit Recovery: High school students who, for whatever reason, failed to earn credit for a high school course, will be given opportunities to recover those credits as needed for graduation. Credit recovery methods are determined to meet the needs of each student and could involve repeating a course in the classroom, taking the course using instructional software, or designing an individualized learning plan through credit flex.
