Education has many benefits and has a positive impact on our lives. It allows each person to gain power and create opportunities. It impacts every aspect of our lives, as it is the means by which we develop as individuals and come to understand our world. The ability to gain knowledge, access positive learning opportunities and apply skills are the cornerstones of healthy human development.
The Education Matters Gala
Summit Academy's Education Matters Gala on March 8, 2020, at 6 pm, offers an opportunity for New York City’s most influential and brightest trailblazers to network and mingle while contributing to a phenomenal cause. It has always been our desire to make a tangible and lasting impact on our community. From the start, our vision was to open a school that serves New York City’s most precious resource. A significant part of that vision is establishing an academic program, which will all but guarantee that all graduates will have the option of attending the college or university of their dream.
The Education Matters Gala is also an opportunity to honor local champions for education. This year's recipients of the Impact Award are:
Destiny Jennings Dytanya Mixson
Daeshani Parker Tremaine Price
Haylee Rickens Carolina Salguero
We hope that you will join us for our 3rd Annual Education Matters Gala on March 8, 2020. All proceeds from the gala will fund programs, affording scholars a robust college preparatory program, which will all but guarantee college acceptance and success.
