Shadow Days

Summit Everest cordially invites you to visit our school and experience what it’s like to be a Snow Leopard! Shadows will have an opportunity to engage with an Everest student ambassador, sit in classes, meet our teachers and administrators.

At Summit Everest every student will form deep friendships with their classmates and their mentor in our small knit community. Everest students explore their passions and figure out what drives them and makes them unique. By the time our students graduate they are prepared to succeed in college and to be thoughtful, contributing, members of society. We welcome you to learn more about Summit Everest!

The day will begin at 9:15am and end at 12:00pm. All shadows should bring a snack, a notebook, a writing utensil, and something to read. Shadow days are limited to 12 students per day.

What I like most about my son's experience with the school is the personalized learning and mentor program. The students all seem to share the same goal of wanting to do well in school now so they can go to a 4-year college. They encourage and build upon each other's confidence.
