Together, Apart: Social-Emotional Connection in the Age of COVID-19 and Distance Learning

According to Dr. Heet, The Summit plans to achieve student resilience through "a commitment to the values of progressive education, which include attending to the whole child. Resilience can be built through strong emotional connections and a caring community that provides emotional support and demonstrates compassion for those around us."

"At The Summit, we are continually looking for opportunities for growth, and by investing in our students' social-emotional wellbeing, we are fostering a positive mindset in the midst of crisis that will aid in the development of grit and perseverance." The result is well-rounded students who are prepared to think critically and creatively about life's challenges, and adapt quickly to what's next.
