After three years of scholarly research and extensive planning, it is my pleasure to announce the Summit Board of Directors has unanimously approved the Summit Academy application. The application has been submitted to the BVSD Board of Education, and after a 90 day review period the board will make a decision
We need your help to spread the word and let the BVSD Board Members know that our community needs a new, innovative high school. Please reach out to the representative for your district by email or phone and voice your support! You can also contact members of the District Accountability Committee. Lastly, if you have not yet provided a letter of support, please do so at our website!
Our vision is to provide students the opportunity to be part of a reimagined high school experience -where each student’s passion unlocks new possibilities for the future! As a top-50 Project XQ finalist, our efforts have drawn national attention and we have heard from many Boulder community members that we need an innovative new high school.
Summit Academy will reimagine high school around three pillars: follow your passion, learn from community and be a global citizen. Students will join a small, innovative high school of 400-600 students, where the curriculum is built on rigorous academic standards, interdisciplinary global themes, engaged learning, and social-emotional development. Student experiences will be connected to the world and engaged with
innovative community organizations. Students will not only master critical 21st century skills like collaboration and creativity, but have a chance to envision and invent solutions for the future that will have an impact in the real world. Through these experiences, students will see they can make a difference and serve a greater purpose in our society!
We have three more scheduled community meetings for families interested in learning about the plans for Summit Academy. These meetings will begin at 6:30 pm on February 28th, March 21st, and April 18th. Please join us to share your ideas!
