The Summit Inpatient Program: Athletics & Activities

Varsity and Intramural Athletics and Recreation

Learning to handle pressure and opposition on the field of play is invaluable experience for creating positive momentum in life.

At The Summit Academy, we provide a healthy milieu where competition and life collide. By competing in seven varsity sports in the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL), the Summit Academy Knights learn life lessons and uncover a sense of strength and pride many of them never knew they had.

Summit students engage in a range of varsity sports and intramural programs which concretely imprint the essential concepts of teamwork, respect, trust, discipline, commitment and dedication.

Fieldtrips & Off-Campus Activities

Although our students may temporarily reside in rural Butler County while at Summit Academy, the proximity to Pittsburgh makes it easy for them to regularly experience new situations, cultures and lifestyles. Nearly every weekend, our students attend off-campus activities which may include a ballet, a professional or collegiate sporting event, a museum, a historical landmark, the zoo or other unique event. As a result, they return to their home and community with a broader sense of the world and of their place in it.
