High School Summit Program
High Schools may implement the Summit program with Classroom Mini Summits, by joining a large Regional Summit or both. Mini Summits typically involve 30 - 90 students, are facilitated by a local teacher and are held within individual schools. Regional Summits involve up to 500 students from multiple schools, are facilitated by certified Summit Trainers and are usually held on university campuses or in other large community facilities.
The Regional Summit Program for High Schools begins with teacher training, then progresses to student preparation and finally results in a very exciting end-of-semester large scale simulation of the global economy. Check out the video of a Regional Summit.
Up to 100 country teams and 500 students may be involved in a Regional Summit event. These are usually held on university campuses. Students from several high schools participate. Regional Summits are usually managed by the Summit Institute from Boise State University in conjunction with a local sponsoring organization or university. The cost varies depending on the event but is typically in the range of $80.00 to $100.00 per student team. Teams usually consist of five students each.

Classroom Mini Summits
The Classroom Mini Summit Program for High Schools is designed for teachers and students just starting out in the International Economic Summit or whose schools are located in remote areas where traveling to a large Regional Summit event is not practical. A Classroom Mini Summit is organized and conducted by the local teacher, using the tools and interface provided by this Summit Website.
All teachers trained and certified in the Summit program receive a Classroom Mini Summit Kit, which provides all they need for conducting their own classroom Summits. There is a small team fee for participating in the Mini Summit program, which usually consists of two students each. For more information, contact Leon Maynard at 208-426-1810 or email .
