The Summit Scholars program enrolls 10-15 boys from families with demonstrated financial need in the local area seeking to expand their future educational opportunities through a robust, engaging, and supportive academic enrichment program. Grounded in the experience and expertise of Belmont Hill, the program features our current faculty and students and connects to both the academic curriculum and the larger character-driven mission of Belmont Hill.
