At Evergreen Country Day we believe that every student is gifted. Some struggle to be challenged appropriately in just the right way at just the right time in just the right context. Some struggle with language-based learning differences. All learn in unique ways. All journey along a circuitous path of unlocking, understanding, and unleashing their own unique gifts to share with the world.
At Evergreen Country Day our Learning Support initiative is called Summit Learning.
Summit Learning comprises two components: ACE and PEAKS.
Summit Learning: ACE
This program is designed to serve students whose academic abilities transcend our classroom curriculum and in turn who would benefit from additional Acceleration, Challenge, and/or Enrichment.
Summit Learning: PEAKS
This program embraces the various paths to personal peaks that all students experience. PEAKS is designed to serve students with mild to moderate language based learning differences who would benefit from focused learning support.
Learning support specialists trained in gifted education and/or language based learning differences lead small group and one-on-one instruction for our Summit Learning students and also partner with classroom teachers to ensure that all students’ learning needs are being met.
