Romulus, MI, April 06, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Summit Academy North High School has the highest
graduation rate among charter schools in Michigan, according to new state data released last week.

MLive.com parsed the data and ranked the top 50 Michigan high schools by graduation rate during the
2015-2016 school year. Summit Academy checked in at No. 17 with a graduation rate of 98.58% - nearly
20% better than the state average of 79.65%.

Summit Academy North is the only charter school in the Top 50. Additionally, it's one of just three
schools in Wayne County overall.

This is an extraordinary accomplishment, and a testament to the culture we've created here, said Leann
Hedke, Superintendent of Summit Academy. Our staff takes tremendous pride in fostering a learning
environment that works for every one of our students, and prepares them for success both before and after
graduation.

If you graduate from a Summit Academy school, you're almost certainly going to have a chance to further
your education. In each of the past five years, every single Summit Academy North and Summit
Academy Flat Rock graduate has been accepted into college.

We are universally committed to ensuring that every single one of our students not only graduates, but is
accepted into college and earns a college scholarship, said Hedke. We have a number of programs in
place to support students in these endeavors, so they have the best possible chance at reaching their
respective goals.

In addition to a nurturing and inclusive learning environment, Summit Academy's exemplary graduation
and college acceptance rates can be attributed to factors like its comprehensive STEAM curriculum, small
classroom sizes, and partnerships with companies like zSpace, a 3D Lab that empowers learning through
virtual reality.
