Academic Accreditation

From the school's inception, the Board of Directors of Summit Preparatory School has insisted on excellence; meeting the highest standards, providing accountability as assurance to our families that their children receive the best education possible. The State of Montana’s Board of Public Education/Office of Public Instruction accreditation definitively addresses accountability and assurance to our families in keeping with our Board’s vision of excellence.

Montana accreditation assures that high academic standards and accountability is met and makes us unique among therapeutic boarding schools in Montana as the only school that has earned this distinction. The state of Montana's accreditation assures:

  • A comprehensive academic program of rigor and relevance in all subject areas based on standards and benchmarks toward diploma award
  • Montana certified teachers who teach only in their areas of licensure
  • Montana certified administrator, librarian, guidance counselor and special education teacher
  • Instructional time per course that exceeds requirement for credit award
  • In-state resident acceptance to Montana state colleges and universities, upon graduation from Summit Prep.
