New Summit Charter Academy delivers an academically rigorous yet warm and caring environment, partnering with parents to prepare productive members of society while instilling a lifetime love of learning. We use a classical approach to our academics which means it is based on grammar, rhetoric, and logic.
Academics We Believe In
Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) is a comprehensive language arts curriculum program. While teaching skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking, CKLA also builds students’ knowledge and vocabulary in literature, history, geography, and science.
DLI (Daily Language Instruction) is a focused, stand-alone resource for students that specifically targets writing conventions: capitalization, punctuation, grammar, and usage. DLI focuses on one new skill each week.
We use a proven character education program and approach called, Capturing Kids’ Hearts by The Flippen Group to be an immersive, participatory experience. Teachers, staff, and administrators learn and practice skills to build meaningful, productive relationships with every student and every school community member.
Students work together with peers of similar skill levels. WIN Time stands for What I Need, where students learn to self-regulate and prioritize their learning. Grouping builds confidence for those who struggle because gifted kids move up, but those that struggle don’t move down. Teachers use skill level grouping to effectively and efficiently apply differentiation in reading and math.
