In 2016, two NSA students took on the project of creating a new design and flow to our "first impression" of New Summit Academy. All of the pictures are real - none are staged. This kind of collaborative empowerment to see things from a student perspective is just one of the reasons NSA is an amazing place to be!

By using our Supportive Immersion methods to connect with and empower students as well as scaffold and process immersion experiences in academics, we find innovative and individualized ways to motivate and support students to become life-long learners, more engaged and confident students, and responsible, accountable contributors to society.
Our Supportive Immersion paradigm nurtures, empowers, and guides the healthy development of one's self within a relationship-based community context. As well as building strong mentoring relationships, we empower students in structured individualized goal-planning for their future and support them in the practice of processing their progress and following through with their goals.
Families are an integral part of the process in growing alongside their sons and reconnecting, repairing relationships, and learning healthier ways of relating.
