The Summit Academy: Family & Aftercare Services
Life beyond Summit comes with some very real challenges. That is why we believe in equipping our young men with the skills and resources they need to create a strong support system outside our school.
Creating a Transition Plan
Prior to discharge, each student participates in the creation of his own Transition Plan. This document serves as a roadmap to success, outlining his future priorities and objectives. The Transition Plan includes a holistic approach to community and family reunification and draws in all the influences in the young man's life: probation offices, school districts, parents, families and community resources.
A Sense of Purpose
Summit students returning to Allegheny County may enroll in one of The Academy Community-Based Programs for after-care services as part of their reintegration and continue to receive positive reinforcement as part of the “Summit family”. In Philadelphia County, students can work with our reintegration team to receive assistance for themselves and their families.
Success is Contagious
At every level, across all of our programs, The Summit Academy strives to instill a deep sense of accomplishment and achievement in our students. We have seen it change lives, time and time again. Once students have proven themselves, they know they have more strength than they ever imagined. Returning to their families and communities equipped with the skills, abilities and motivation to face the challenges ahead of them, our young men know the future is in their hands. Finally, they are free to realize their true potential.
