Summit International was founded in 1994 as an outreach ministry for Dr. Michael Commini and we never forgot our origins! Originally established to work with the youth of America, Summit International has grown to include support for Faith based organizations around the globe.
Our youth are our countries' futures. Shouldn't they be well grounded in faith if our countries are to remain successful? Summit International's group of professionals stand ready to help your faith-based organization establish education and training programs that will allow your youth to grow and develop into strong men and woman whose faith remains unshakable even in the face of adversity. Dr. Commini and his staff of educational consultants stand ready to advise and mentor your faith-based organization to meet the needs of today's youth and adult learners.
Establishing an online, or distance learning, presence is crucial to any faith-based organization seeking to reach out globally. Whether your organization desires to design, develop, and host its own instructional content or use sound, faith-based curricula already available for delivery online, our education consultants can guide your organization through the process of establishing your academic foundation: a) state and local licensing requirements, b) securing non-profit status, if applicable, c) securing hosting services, if needed, d) serving as liaison between your organization and curriculum developers and textbook publishers, e) mentoring your faculty on the use of the online environment, including grade book administration and attendance record keeping, and f) mentoring your site administrator.
Whether your faith-based organization is just beginning to develop an academic community outreach or already has one established, our education consultants can assist you in developing and/or strenghtening your program. Our consultants are available to mentor your faculty and staff through the process of establishing your academic institution: a) state and local licensing, b) establishing a viable, nutritious lunch program, c) securing health department approval for your organization's lunchroom, d) securing non-profit status, if applicable, e) mentoring your administrative staff through the process of establishing policies and procedures for record keeping, f) selecting an effective, efficient record keeping software application that will allow your organization to quickly and easily track attendance and grades, g) serving as liaison between your organization and curriculum developers and textbook publishers, and h) providing professional development courses to help your faculty and staff remain current.
And should your faith-based organization desire the best of both worlds - distance learning and classroom based education - our consultants are ready to mentor your staff through the process of establishing a blended-learning environment. Reach out to your community and globally by providing an outreach to working parents, single-mothers, homeschoolers, missionary families, and those who desire a quality, faith-based education from wherever they are in the world!
