About Summit Academy North High School
“High school now, college next, NO EXCUSES!”
This motto reflects our fierce commitment to helping our students not only graduate, but get into college with scholarship offers in hand.
Few schools prepare students for their future like Summit Academy North High School — and we have the numbers to prove it. Our graduation rate of 98.58% for the 2015-16 school year was best among Michigan charters and 17th best overall. We have a 100% college acceptance rate each of the last seven years. And hundreds of our recent graduates have earned at least one scholarship offer. These are just a few of the reasons we made the U.S. News and World Reports Best High Schools in Michigan!
Our mission is to ensure that all of our students are poised for success after they graduate. Our College Advantage Program, offered to select 9th and 10th graders, enables students to earn up to 58 college credits before they even graduate. We offer dual-enrollment college opportunities for 11th and 12th grade students. What’s more, we have a dedicated college advisor, host free campus field trips, and organize senior seminars designed to equip students with the skills they need to succeed at the next level.
Our students receive a comprehensive education in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. As one of the few TEALS program participants in the state, students also gain invaluable computer science skills. By incorporating technologies into lesson plans, we’re able to keep students engaged and add a dash of flair to our lesson plans.
In terms of extracurricular activities, we offer a full menu of athletic opportunities, as well as award-winning performing arts and Color Guard programs. We also sponsor clubs like DECA, HOSA and National Honor Society. Our extracurriculars are a great way to make friends, expand your intellectual horizons and hone in on a potential career path.
What really makes North High School stand out, though, is our culture. We have great school spirit, and our zero-tolerance bullying policy guarantees that school is a safe place for learning, growing and expressing your individuality. We are truly a family here, all pulling on the same rope to bring out the very best in each other and ensure that every student reaches their goals.
