A Letter from Our CEO
Dear Summit Academy Family,
Sadly, National news agencies have reported another violent school incident this morning involving the injury of both students and adults. Our prayers go out to the students and their families of Pennsylvania’s Murrysville High School students injured in a violent knife attack by a 16-year-old fellow student. I can only imagine the fear running through their entire community.
In recent years, I have had the occasion to write too many of these very troubling communications to our Summit Academy Family. Please know that Summit Academy Schools have and continue to put safety as the top priority. Review of approved safety plans are in place and reviewed on a regular basis. Every school has drills for lock downs and evacuations that are reviewed by safety officials.
In regard to today’s Murrysville crisis...

It was a day for hotdogs, hanging out, sports talk and football at Youngstown High School for Autism.
Paint. Was. Everywhere.
