Service to the local community is a regular part of students’ lives at The Summit. Acts of service are not treated as a rote requirement or a utilitarian means of packing a college application. Rather, our students learn that community outreach is a natural outflow of who and what we are as both members of a family and the greater society at larger. A healthy part of maturity involves learning to look beyond our immediate needs. Personal responsibility always includes learning to understand and anticipate the needs and concerns of our neighbors.
The Summit designates four community service days per year for projects involving the entire student body and a large percentage of students volunteer or are otherwise actively involved on a regular basis with our partner charities. In the 2017-18 academic year, students from The Summit participated in 350 man hours of hands-on service contributions to community support and ministry efforts.
