Pathways to Success: Exploring the Long-Term Outcomes of Alumni from Summit Public Schools

Summit envisions a country that nurtures and intentionally equips every child, regardless of background or circumstance, to enter adulthood prepared to lead a fulfilled life — one with purpose, financial security, meaningful relationships, a supportive community, and strong physical, mental, and socioemotional health. But up until now, we, like other educators, have not been able to see a full picture of the extent to which our alumni are living out this vision.

The Alumni Pathways Project is the largest and most comprehensive study on alumni outcomes at Summit Public Schools to date, and it is our first attempt to directly measure our ultimate intended outcomes of well-being and fulfillment. In this first-of-its-kind report, 71.7% of alumni reported high levels of overall well-being. Read the full report, Pathways to Success, to learn more.
