That's money that will be spent this academic year, in support of students who are here now and the learning activities they enjoy today. All members of The Summit community - present and past - are encouraged to give their "best gift" to The Raven Fund each year.

S tudy Abroad Trip to España: Success!

The Summit completed its first official study abroad trip in June. The group of 16 travelers journeyed across Spain for 11 amazing days. They took in the sites, ate the local cuisine, practiced their Spanish, and made memories that will last forever!

Did you miss their adventure? Check out the study abroad trip on Summit's Social Media and also on the Spanish Blog. Each student (and a few guest adult writers) wrote on The Summit's Spanish blog each day of the trip. Check out their views and the impressions of the trip by clicking here:  Summit's Spanish Blog.

There are also lots of pictures (and a few videos) on the school's social media pages. Look back through images here:  Summit's Facebook Page or here  Summit's Instagram.
