Our Company: Summit Scholars college advisors
The Summit Team
The Summit Scholars leadership team includes a former private school headmaster, a former public school district assistant superintendent, academic coaches, administrative support staff and an extended network of independent college consultants.
The Summit Distinctives
Summit Scholars was created to serve God by providing greater options for students and parents who seek to optimize their college plans.
We focus on assisting and preparing students to strive for and reach for their highest potential, their own summit.
Our philosophy is student centric, not institution centered.
We answer the first and most important college question: Who is the student?
Our perspective is broader than the traditional approach as we believe that students are developed both inside and outside of the classroom.
We encourage our scholars to be concerned not only about getting admitted to college, but selecting a college that matches their aptitudes, abilities, aspirations and where they can achieve their full potential.
