Parent Involvement

Parent Volunteering

Summit Prep’s vision for meeting our mission to prepare students for college, career, and life success is fulfilled with the support of our wonderful parents and community members. Our most successful families embrace our values and beliefs, and actively engage in modeling our six core characteristics: respect, responsibility, courage, compassion, curiosity, and integrity.

We encourage parents to participate in school events at least once per year to meet other students and families and work together to support our community. These volunteer opportunities have fostered personal relationships between families that have led to a virtuous cycle of support and accountability for all of our students. We also hope that as many families as possible will join SPOT – the Summit Parent Organizing Team – and join for our monthly meetings. We are so proud of how our community network continues to fulfill our mission to be a parent-supported program that holds high expectations for all students and families.

We believe parents are our partners in fulfilling our mission. Each year, our goal is to have all parents participate at least once Opportunities will be advertised in our weekly newsletter (HuskyBytes). You may also email SPOT at:
