Welcome to the Summit Academy Independence Counseling Center

 Counseling services are available for ALL Summit Academy Independence students.

Summit Academy follows the Utah Model Comprehensive School Counseling Program. Our mission is to have all students graduate from high school with the skills, knowledge and disposition essential to be college and career ready. The program focuses on four main outcomes for students:
 
  • Academic/Learning
  • Life/Career Development
  • Personal/Social Development
  • Multicultural/Global Citizenship

 

All students participate in the Comprehensive School Counseling Program through (1) School Guidance Curriculum which provides instruction in the classroom to develop the skills needed to be successful, (2) Individual Planning where students, parents, and counselor meet together to plan, monitor, and manage the student's learning activities as well as develop goals for the student's future, and (3) Responsive Services which meet the immediate concerns and needs of the students with an emphasis on prevention.

All students at Summit Academy will meet with the school counselor at least once each year.

 

Ms. Shurtz is the 504 File holder at the Independence Campus for 6th-8th grades.
