On Wednesday, November 29th 2017, the Summit Academy design team held a
community discussion regarding plans for a new 21st century charter high school in the Boulder Valley School District. The vision for Summit Academy grew from a three-year study on innovative school designs and attempts from several teams in Boulder to win the Project XQ re-imagining high school initiative. This work progressed to become one of the top 50 designs in the whole country!
The Summit Academy model is founded on the principles of personalized, scholar-
centered learning coupled with college-ready academic standards and lifelong learning skills.The team’s application for charter expansion to develop Summit Academy will be submitted to the BVSD Board of Education in January.
