Help us continue to improve Summit, our leadership training facility!

Summit – Union, Michigan

We believe everything we do should have a purpose to go along with it. Each week, our students are challenged to own their academic success, take charge of their future, and make the next right decision. One of the ways we challenge them to succeed is through Summit’s experiential learning!


Summit is the national training center for current and future leaders to come and be trained in our Core Values and programming methods through leadership experiences! Using this approach, students and educators can come to Summit, be trained, and take the Five Star Life model back to their communities, thus continuing the ripple effect!


Summit gives students a chance to practice what they have learned throughout the year in a tangible, experiential way that extends beyond the school building. Students are presented with opportunities to conquer their fears and put their leadership skills to test through various leadership experiences that include: Adventure Learning Center (high-low ropes course, rock wall), Target Learning Center (in partnership with USA Archery/US Junior Olympics), Nature Education Center (fishing, boating, swimming, gardening), Equestrian Learning Center (horse interaction and care), Summit Speedway (go-karts) and Service Learning. Each leadership experience is tied to our curriculum so students are learning with very intentional steps!


In addition, Summit gives us the opportunity to serve local school districts and other nonprofit organizations that benefit and serve youth. Summit is our future and has opened up endless possibilities for growth! We encourage you to contact the offices at 574-266-4038 or email at to schedule a tour today! Come be a part of the movement!
