This program is one that FamilyLight sm intends to review in greater depth online. We have received part of the response to our Questionnaire from Summit Achievement and we have been promised the entire questionnaire.
(Article continues below box)
Summit Achievement is unique in offering a wilderness program with an opportunity to complete core courses on a full credit basis. This kind of opportunity is extremely rare. We believe we may have another wilderness program moving in that direction, but we are awaiting clarification and confirmation.
Summit Achievement will be closely considered for Positive Intervention sm designation. We know that they come close to meeting our guidelines for that designation. We are cautiously optimistic that they may be the first program specifically granted that designation.
We are grateful to Summit Achievement for introducing us to Dr. Gregory Carbone at Psychodiagnostic Services of Southern Maine, who handles psychological evaluations for Summit Achievement. FamilyLight sm refers clients to Dr. Carbone from all parts of the country who are not necessarily connected to Summit Achievement.
We have had great success with students who have gone to Summit Achievement.
While you wait for us to present a more complete review, please look around this website. Look at our Guidelines -- a fairly comprehensive statement of what we believe quality is all about. If you come to a search and planning process with limited experience, this is an opportunity for you to find some principles to measure schools and programs against.
Keep coming back to see the updates. Look at "What's New" (Announcements). In spring of 2009 we expect to have returns from schools, programs, and related organizations published, giving deeper insight into these than has ever been available on the web before.
Feedback is invited. We will publish any feedback in good taste. Email FamilyLightResponse@yahoo.com
Disclaimer: No program review, no matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket condemnation. When we express our level of confidence in a school or program, that is our subjective opinion with which others might reasonably disagree. When we assert something as fact, we have done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines -- not guidelines from an official source. We have also set the bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total compliance. It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect conformity to our guidelines. Some will say we expect too much. Readers are responsible for verifying accuracy of information supplied here prior to acting upon it. We are not responsible for inaccuracies.
We do not specifically endorse UK Shopping. They "sponsor" our counter.
