Apply to Summit

Please read all the instructions before beginning the application. If you have any questions, please email

Application for Summit Study Center 

Please be as thorough and detailed as possible in your essay responses. We do not interview for the program; instead, we use these applications to get to know you and to decide if the program would be a good fit for your journey. One- or two-sentence answers don't usually give us enough information, so please be thorough and complete in your responses. There is no character limit.

The Summit Application includes two components. For a student to be considered for the program, both components must be completed by the application deadline. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all forms are turned in on time.

The Student Application Form is completed by the applicant. This section is an important part of your application; it is our primary resource for getting to know you. Take time to think and pray about these questions. Answer each question thoroughly in clear, concise, and complete sentences that exhibit genuine consideration and self-reflection. There is no minimum page requirement, but the average application usually consists of 3-4 pages, single-spaced. Applicants must also submit a profile photo, which should be attached to an email as a .jpg or .png.

The Peer Reference Form is completed by one of the applicant's peers who knows the student well enough to speak to his or her suitability for the program.
PLEASE NOTE: Both forms require an online portion and responses to essay prompts. The essay responses should be attached to an email and sent to . The subject line should include the applicant's name and the name of the form (ex: "John Doe Peer Form"). 

If you have any questions, please email us at or call 978.867.4123.
