Summit Academy Middle School – Columbus
Lake Erie West’s Community Schools Center Sponsor Annual Report
Our vision for alternative learners
Enroll at Summit Academy-Columbus Middle School (6th-8th Grade). Summit Academy is a safe haven for children with learning challenges. We have a highly qualified staff that work in cohesion to create a positive, encouraging, and helpful environment for students to learn and flourish. We realize that children learn and function in a unique way. Instead of treating a learning challenge as a problem, we embrace it and discover new ways to teach based on our students’ special needs. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is the framework we use to support the academic, social-emotional, and behavioral abilities of all students. If you would like more information about our school, please call 614-237-5497.
Our school is highly beneficial for children with social and learning disorders including ADHD, Autism, and Autism Spectrum Disorder because we are able to keep our classroom sizes small and get to know each student’s special needs and ways of learning. We also have various curriculums to meet each student’s needs and bridge the gap in education, along with frequent assessments to monitor and ensure growth in our students.
Columbus Community School is well equipped for various in-school activities. Our facility includes a multipurpose room that includes our gym, cafeteria, and dojo, which is a space where students practice martial arts and relieve stress. Each student has access to a Chromebook to better enhance their learning process, and Smart Boards are present in each classroom for the same reason.
We believe in the importance of having a well-rounded educational experience, which is why we integrate art, music, and martial arts into our curriculum. We also hold many events for our students to enjoy after school hours including:
- Math Nights
- Literacy Nights
- Therapeutic Martial Arts and Board Breaking Ceremony
- Game of Life
- Student Interest Clubs
- School Spirit Weeks
- PBIS and MTSS Incentives
- and more!
