The Summits Education Model

Our three-part model is designed to deliver quality education to the poor. 

Hub and Spoke

We start by establishing networks of schools that are centrally managed, supported, and monitored to ensure high standards of quality. 

Invest in Teachers

We invest in teachers and principals within the networks through intensive training and development. 

Collaborative Impact

We assemble partners to help address the additional obstacles to learning such a lack of infrastructure and school feeding programs. 

Summits Academy

Summits Academy is a college prep school for high-performing students and a training center for the educators in the Summits Primary network. 

Teacher Trainers

Teachers and principals in the Summits Primary network receive ongoing training, development, and coaching from our Teacher Trainers.

Summits Primary

Summits operates a network of primary schools and provides intensive interventions aimed at improving student outcomes. 


We invests in teachers through:



Core curriculum areas such as science, math, and literacy.



The art of teaching: delivery, classroom and behavioral management.

Competitive Wages

In partnership with local governments, Summits pays teachers competitive wages.


Teaching is a practice that requires ongoing support and coaching.
