Life after Summers-Knoll
After Summers-Knoll, what’s next?
“Summers-Knoll was the start of my adventures. I have always loved to learn but it was at Summers-Knoll that my potential was taught to me. There exist limitless boundaries at SK. That is what is so special. It is an environment of support, love, encouragement, while still promoting academic prosperity. Summers-Knoll prepared me for Greenhills. The internships, scholarships, and incredible opportunities I have had never would have come about if I hadn’t found myself and pushed myself and I was able to do that after going to SK.
It is a truly special place. A place that is unlike most, and when you find places like SK you have to hold on to them. I am so proud to be an alumni from SK. And hope that others have the opportunity to attend and gain what I did from spending time on campus with the special people who make SK, SK!”
