NEW PLAN as of 8/3/2020:
After careful consideration of the safety of our students, families, teachers, and school staff members, all 24 Summit Academy Schools will provide remote learning only during the first nine weeks of the school year. Classes for the 2020-2021 school year will begin on August 24.
As we learn more about the status of COVID-19 in the weeks ahead, we expect to have an update by September 30 as to the teaching format Summit Academy Schools may provide during the second quarter, which begins October 19.
In the meantime, thank you for your flexibility and steadfastness as we continue to navigate safely through the COVID-19 pandemic.

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. 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
- Board Breaking Ceremony
- Field Day
- and more!
