Because of the rigor of the evaluation process, the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School award is both a high aspiration and an exemplary recognition of excellence.
New Summit Charter Academy is proud to recognize the outstanding educators who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the lives of our children. We identify as a Capturing Kids’ Hearts school and educators, we celebrate the remarkable work we have accomplished!

The social contracts are a key piece of CKH and become the centerpiece of the classroom culture.
Built on four basic questions:
○ How do you want to be treated by me (leader)?
○ How do you want to be treated by each other?
○ How do you think I (leader) want to be treated by you?
○ How do you want to treat each other when there is conflict?
Every social contract includes three ideas: effort, listening, no put-downs with RESPECT being a key element. Questioning helps process the specifics of what that looks like (playground, lunch, etc.).
New Summit Charter Academy is a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School. That being said, we follow a CKH model of interaction and relationship-building strategies; the EXCEL model. Every person in our building follows this example and leads our students to the same model. Below is a summary you will see and hear referenced frequently.
