About Summit Academy Charter School in Flat Rock
Summit Academy Flat Rock is a charter school serving grades K-8, as well as preschool. We employ the “STEAM” approach to education, which focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. This approach is proven to give students a strong, diverse foundation of knowledge that they can build upon for the rest of their academic careers.
Every year we spice up our curriculum with a school-wide, year-long theme. For the 2017-2018 school year, our theme is “Decades.” All classes were assigned a decade from 1920-1970, and students will explore the different elements of STEAM during that era.
In addition to our innovative curriculum, we take pride in our inclusive culture. As a “one-stop shop” before high school, our students are able to develop lasting relationships with their classmates and teachers. Students in “The Pinnacle” (grades 6-8) are even given a chance to visit and mentor younger classrooms.
Parents, students, and staff all agree that our school feels like an extension of the home. That’s because everyone “fits in” here and people treat each other like family. There’s no better place to start your academic journey than Summit Academy Flat Rock!
