At Summit School at Nyack, we believe every day is a fresh opportunity to start anew and develop stable, gratifying relationships with adults and peers. By working with staff across many disciplines, students master the skills needed to thrive in school, at home, and in the community. Our task is to inspire motivation and help develop new patterns of behavior that will put each student on the path to successful adulthood.
We understand that students may be coming to us after years of repeated setbacks. Guided and supported by special education teachers, social workers and residential staff, students learn to take risks and open themselves to new experiences, responsibilities, and relationships that will enrich their lives.
