Summit Seeking is the process of developing a love of learning and growth through Heart, Inspiration, Knowledge, Engagement, and Reflection 

 

Why?

Throughout the decades of education reform, standardized testing, evaluation & assessment, what is often missed in the quest for high achievement is the enjoyment of growth.  Summit Seeking is a process to help not only students, but also educators to become "lovers of the process of learning."  It is a constant reminder to take the time to rejoice in struggles & successes and remember that the reaching of one summit, does not stop us from seeking another.  The ultimate goal is to enjoy the journey so that when we miss our summit, we can try again because our love was found on the trail, not at the top.

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
