AWAKEN THE POTENTIAL
At Summit School, we leave no stone unturned in offering our students programs equal to their uniqueness and abilities. This has been our mission for six decades. That is why the time is now to further build upon our reputation as a Canadian trailblazer in education, treatment, and inclusion advocacy.
Introducing Summit School's
Creative Arts Centre
Summit is building a state-of-the-art expansion to its existing building. Housed in this new centre will be a new gymnasium and training complex as well the very first Canadian Creative Arts Center for the Neurodiverse.
Built for Research
Bringing Our Expertise to the World
Integrated in the new expansion will be infrastructure allowing for Summit’s in-house, McGill affiliated, research centre, SCERT (nationally unique model), to conduct and disseminate studies into the relationship between the arts, physical education, and their effects on neurodevelopment in its student population.
Researching the Benefits
SCERT's studies aim to fill the gap in research correlating exposure to performance and arts education and self confidence, autonomy and identity in developmentally diverse youth.
Researching the Benefits of Movement
Studies suggest physical activity improves both mental health and academic performance in typically developing youth, SCERT aims to examine these relationships in neurodiverse students.
Exploring Best Practices
SCERT's research into Summit School's unique approach will lead to verifiable best practices that can be disseminated locally, nationally and internationally.
