to the very core of who we are as a nation…
it is the civil rights movement of today!”
Several years ago, educators blamed outdated technology for the reason why our school system was failing. Having heard this, Bill Gates decided to give $5 billion to update public school technology. Ten years later in a Wall Street Journal Article, Bill said that his $5 billion failed to move the needle at all. All this money was poured into schools and there was nothing to show for it!
We accomplish this by providing schools with a variety of academic, leadership, and character programming that addresses the sources of negative mindsets. These programs include: our proprietary Video Curriculum for Classrooms, our afterschool program, as well as Leadership Camps and Day Trips at Summit.
All programming focuses on 5 key areas:
The Afterschool Program
The High School Leadership Program
Summit Life Leadership Camp & Leadership Day Trips
Five Star Life Basketball
A school implemented the Video Curriculum throughout the school day for its entire population for a year. School administration found that it had over 5,000 less disciplinary referrals than the previous academic year!

I LOVE the ideas included in your curriculum. I'm a 7th grade special education teacher at Navarre Intermediate and I truly want to know when you will expand to include our school. Clearly this is the missing piece needed to help the children develop into whole people who are ready for life's next step. Rarely do they have the opportunity to identify and relate to who they are and this seems to be the overall theme throughout your program.
After several years of having the Five Star program in our building, we are convinced that Five Star is the program that we can’t live without at West Side Middle School. Students who participate in the program have shown a positive change in attitude, a desire to do better academically and a sense of respect for those around them. The success with our most at-risk students has been phenomenal!
