National Showcase Schools Award Won by New Summit for the Second Year in a Row

New Summit Charter Academy is 1 of 23 schools in Colorado that was selected for the 2020-2021 Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools® award. Each year, Capturing Kids’ Hearts recognizes several hundred schools for their efforts in various areas where educators are exceeding expectations.

National Showcase Schools are chosen via a thorough and rigorous process that includes the measurement of key performance indicators, the gathering of campus data, and by surveying staff and students. The results of these processes show how each school implements the CKH processes and how it affects each school’s culture and climate.

At New Summit, we are building a positive school culture through character education and Capturing Kids’ Hearts to be an immersive, participatory experience. Teachers, staff, and administrators learn and practice skills they use and model in their classrooms that build meaningful, productive relationships with every student and every school community member.

Through all the challenges that have come this year, New Summit has still been able to consistently create an environment where students feel safe and love learning. Teachers and staff have found unique ways to continue building positive environments for students whether they are learning at school or from home all while implementing the Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes, including the CKH EXCEL Teaching Model.

We are so proud of our school staff and teachers who have worked hard to continue fostering social-emotional learning and a relationship-driven culture on our campus. THANK YOU for all you do!
