Welcome to Summit Academy!

  • Summit Academy is the first Leader In Me school in Temecula Valley Unified School District. Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that improves the performance of all school programs. As a Leader in Me school, students, families, and staff learn how to be responsible, show initiative, be creative, set goals and meet them, get a long with people of various backgrounds and cultures, resolve conflicts and solve problems. 

    Dr. Covey, the author of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, defines leadership as "communicating a person's worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves." As a Leader in Me school, everyone learns how to apply the 7 Habits to their personal and academic/professional lives. leadership roles and events take place for our entire community, including our biweekly Leadership Rallies and our Annual Leadership Day. We also apply our leadership skills more deeply to academics through goal setting, data tracking, and student-led conferences. Together, we recognize and celebrate the greatness of each child and provide students with multiple opportunities to develop their full potential. 

    Leadership is not for a few but for everyone. Leadership is not a position. It is action- the actions we take every day. Let's be leaders together and inspire change in our communities. Our hope is that each of you will join us on this journey of greatness!
