The mission statement underscores that every child deserves to learn and thrive without labels or limits. Public, nonprofit Summit Academy Schools engage children with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder(s) and other related challenges by implementing a therapeutic approach that meets their academic, social, emotional and physical needs. The new staff orientation program, titled “Mission Possible,” was held in both Akron and Dayton.
