After a year of construction delays, the school is up and running as it was intended. The academy, located at 6407 N. Business Loop Road in Park City, is the newest school in the South Summit School District. The school officially launched last year, but students met for classes at the Oakley City Hall and the district’s office in Kamas because the building was undergoing construction during the pilot year. They moved into the new space, which was mostly complete, for the last month of school in the spring. Now, the students will spend the whole school year in the new TANZI PROPST/PARK RECORD The Silver Summit Academy in Park City opened its doors to students in the secondary program this week. During the academy’s pilot year, students had to meet at the South Summit School District office until construction was finished. Finally, they are in their own space.

Principals of both the academy’s elementary and secondary programs said parts of the school’s organization have changed this year based on feedback received from teachers, students and parents. Students in the elementary program, for example, will be able to choose which days they will attend school rather than days being assigned. Second- through fifth-graders can attend from two to five days a week, while kindergarten and first-grade students can choose three to five days a week, said Louise Willoughby, principal of the elementary program. Secondary students (grades six through 12) are still expected to be in class from Monday to Thursday. Fridays are optional for students who want one-on-one time with teachers or to work on a project, said Jeff Greiner, principal of the secondary program. This year, the school adopted loose daily schedules for the students rather than letting them move between courses on their own. Classes now have set start and end times, but students can remain in a classroom if they are finishing up an assignment, Greiner said. “We are not pulling you out of science to go to English because of some arbitrary schedule,” he said. “For the most part, kids will flow through the building.” Despite the changes, the schools are not forgetting their core values. The academy focuses on STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, art and math) and utilizes online coursework to supplement lessons taught in the classroom. Students can move through subjects at their own pace. In the elementary program, that means students are not divided into courses by grade, but by ability. “Otherwise, kids start identifying with just that one grade and they are really hard on themselves if they don’t Please see Academy, A-6 Discover the Most Carefree Way to Own at Victory Ranch Just minutes from the legendary ski slopes of Park City and Deer Valley, The Residence Club at Victory Ranch presents an unrivaled fractional ownership opportunity that combines the best in year-round mountain living with the boundless outdoor adventures and world-class amenities of Utah’s most celebrated vacation home community.
