Impact Education challenges and equips students to become servant leaders who will impact their world for Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through:
Elementary students are taught about the character of God with an emphasis on His love for all people, God’s global mission, and our role in serving and praying for a world with needs. Games, projects, and creative learning exercises are used to explore these concepts and create cultural awareness.
Secondary students participate in on-campus and off-campus community service, working alongside teachers, staff, and community members. Highly qualified experts in business, industry, and ministry mentor students through both a seminar series and local short-term missions trips. Students also serve internationally and have traveled to destinations such as France, Iceland, Ireland, People’s Republic of China, Romania, and the United Kingdom.
Through IMPACT, SCA students are equipped to:
Senior Seminars prepare 12th grade students for life beyond Summit utilizing Christian speakers from a variety of professional sectors to give insight into collegiate and vocational pursuits, strengthen and encourage Christian character ahead of more worldly pursuits, and offer insight and wisdom for living for Christ in today’s culture.
Students have the opportunity to venture off campus to serve as secondary students. Going to those with needs models the ministry of Jesus and expands student understanding of needs. Middle school students serve locally or regionally while high schoolers may travel out of state and internationally. Off-campus service has included:
Ginger Lambert has been the Impact Education Director at Summit since 2003. Mrs. G, as she prefers to be called, has a blog where she shares about each of the trips on which she takes our secondary students. You can find her journal here.
