Message from the Director
Dear Fellow Educator,
Summit School’s Center for Excellence & Innovation (CEI) was founded in 2012 with a mission to offer professional education workshops and conferences that use the latest research, science and best practices to develop the talents, skills and passion for teaching among faculty and administrators.
Located in Winston-Salem, NC on the campus of Summit School, the Center for Excellence & Innovation invites independent, public, parochial, and charter school educators who are committed to creating powerful learning experiences drawing on the research and ideas of leading educational thinkers and child development experts. Our workshops and conferences blend theory with practical application, including the opportunity for teachers to observe, network, and/or develop their craft.
Please take a moment to browse our workshops and conferences. We hope you'll find something that inspires you. See you soon!
