Academics

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 will be based on grammar, rhetoric, and logic.

Academics We Believe in:

 

Core Knowledge

The Core Knowledge Curriculum

At New Summit Charter Academy we use the Core Knowledge Curriculum. This curriculum is based on the writings of Professor E.D. Hirsch at the University of Virginia.

Literacy First

Literacy First

Literacy First is a pillar of New Summit Charter Academy. We understand that in order for a child to access all subjects, he/she must know how to read. This creates a love of learning.

Singapore Math

Singapore Math

Singapore Math is a teaching method based on the national mathematics curriculum used for kindergarten through sixth grade in Singapore since the1980’s.

Kid's Hearts

Character Education

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.

Skill Level grouping

Skill Level Grouping

Skill level grouping helps puts kids together who are at similar skill levels. It helps build confidence for those who struggle because gifted kids move up, but those that struggle don't move down.

gifted and talented

Gifted & Talented

New Summit Charter Academy uses nationally accepted criteria for identifying talented and gifted students. This includes using a body of evidence for identification.
