I love coming to Summer Institute. I really enjoy getting to know the other Athlos schools and learning from them and the home court staff. I like the opportunity to network and see what other Athlos schools are doing.

Having uninterrupted time to meet, seek guidance, listen to others, and come together and bond as a team.

Collaborating with other schools to discuss our services, our strengths, and how we can support each other.
