Summit Charter Collegiate Academy is an awesome school! Although it is very small compared to the other very large high schools in the community, the students are able to have a connection with each other and staff that they wouldn't be able to have at any other school. Everyone at Summit Charter is respectful of each other and helpful in times of need!

I enjoyed my time at Summit Charter. It does have it's problems especially with communication between students and staff members. So most of the time students didn't know what was going on at their school. Summit is also a new school so there aren't a lot of opportunities in sports and clubs. The school is also very small for so I have a much closer relationship with my teachers and fellow students. So overall I had a very enjoyable experience at Summit, however there are some problems with the way the school is organized.
I have a lot to say about the school I go to I love the way this school is involved with students education. It's main focus about this school is getting students involved in taking college classes and being ready for the future. I myself have taken college classes and let me tell you its tough and that is whats expected for a student. I have stayed at SCCA since middle school and lots have changed, I do wish we had more sports and clubs. Since we have so little sports/clubs not many students enjoy the school also because we aren't as know as the other high schools. This year teachers are doing the best they can for all students to have fun and make new activities to get them more involved.
