Summerour Middle School is excited to launch the Gear Up Academy for the 2017-2018 school year. This academy teaches goal-setting skills, emphasizes hands-on learning, and promotes extensive use of technology. The Gear Up Academy provides a challenging and rigorous opportunity for students to advance to the high school with enough Carnegie Unites to enter Norcross High School in 10th grade upon successful completion of the program.

 

The Gear Up Academy allows students to accelerate the learning with a challenging curriculum that emphasizes science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). This student-centered learning environment sparks a fundamental change in the way students think about academics. Each classroom supports on-to-one technology, experiential learning, and small-group and whole-class activities, promoting student success and changes in students' perceptions and attitudes toward academic achievement.
