The SUMMIT Program
5
What is the SUMMIT Program?
  • The SUMMIT Scholar Program is Bowie High Schools
    most competitive, rigorous academic course of
    study.

6
Where did SUMMIT come from?
  • The SUMMIT program was created to better
    serve the most highly motivated and able students
    in our community by offering them yet one more
    reason to choose Bowie High School.  Our goal is
    to provide high standards and individual support
    to help achieving students become the most
    competitive college applicants they can be.  

7
What are SUMMIT Students Like?
  • SUMMIT students are
  • highly capable, motivated,
  • independent, disciplined,
  • discerning, literate,
  • analytical, well-rounded
  • scholars.

8
Why should high-achieving students be interested
in SUMMIT?
  • Highly able and motivated students like those in
    SUMMIT would be at least somewhat successful in
    AP with or without the SUMMIT program, but their
    success in AP is increased even more by being
    exposed to AP skills and strategies early. 

9
What is Advanced Placement?
  • The AP Program is a voluntary program that
    offers high school students the opportunity to
    take one or more college-level courses while they
    are still in high school. Students choose from
    many courses in a wide variety of subject areas
    with corresponding College Board exams.

10
What is Advanced Placement? (cont.)
  • Research shows that AP students are more likely
    to go on to college and to perform better once
    they are there. Advanced Placement courses are
    recognized by college admissions officers as the
    most advanced courses a high school can offer.
    Teachers prepare to teach AP courses through
    professional development workshops and Summer
    Institutes.
  • See www.apcentral.collegeboard.com for more
    information about Advanced Placement.

11
  • The philosophy of the SUMMIT program is based on
    the College Boards Vertical Team structure which
    helps students achieve in Advanced Placement
    courses.  These AP courses are rigorous, and
    students need to prepare early for success. 

12
What exactly are SUMMIT classes?
  • SUMMIT students take intensive pre-AP core
    courses freshman and sophomore year (special
    SUMMIT-only sections of honors courses) in order
    to prepare them for AP classes junior and senior
    year.

SUMMITProclamation

The SUMMIT Legacy
  • The Bowie High SUMMIT program is proud to
    redefine the historic practice of legacy by
    accepting students solely on demonstrated merit.
  • Our concept of legacy rests on the families who
    evidence continued support and faith in SUMMIT by
    entrusting more than one of their children to our
    program.
  • The recommitment these families have shown is a
    testament to the power of the Bowie community and
    the effectiveness of smaller learning communities
    like SUMMIT.
  • We wish to thank our legacy families for their
    unflagging and committed support of our program.
