About Summit Global Education:
Our goal is to challenge young people to see the world through another perspective, to get out of their comfort zone, and to experiment with new ways of doing things. We are international educators impassioned to develop global awareness & internationalization of students. Our mission is to help students not only to better understand the world, but also to want to develop a lifetime of personal development in their global education.
What we do
Summit Global Education fosters cross-cultural immersion through study abroad. Summit provides multi-country study abroad programs in Europe and in South America that span across 10 cities in summer and winter sessions. Our programs offer the excitement of travel, rich academic curriculum, professional visits, and cross cultural perspectives all in the same breath.
How we think
First and foremost, international education should be fun. Beyond that, we believe that the best programs will always be designed focused on three guiding principles:
- Celebrate cultural differences
- Get outside of your comfort zone
- Look for the best (in places, people and cultures abroad)
What we value
Cultural tolerance, adventure, experience. We love it when students trespass language barriers, exchange values that they grew up with, laugh through moments of awkward culture shock, have dinner conversations with international students, taste the freshness of local foods, click photos of stunning landscapes, and most of all, see the world from the perspective of diverse populations.
Going Global Begins at Home!

About our unique Summit logo:
Our logo really shows and represents everything that Summit Global Education stands for. It goes everywhere, it mingles with the city, it towers above everything but partly hides behind churches and monuments. It crosses rivers and reflects in the waters. The ups and downs of it’s form represents the journey that our students go through in a deeply immersive cultural experience. You arrive in a foreign place, everything is new and interesting, you are in a high, close to the clouds. But then you start missing the foods you are familiar with, the ease of communication, the ways of your people, and you start to go down…but then you learn to inquire, to understand, and to appreciate other perspectives, and back up you go. All of those experiences are gently overseen and protected by a team of incredibly internationally minded professors and Summit staff who love everything diverse. And after these experiences, how can you come back to walk on the plains again, when climbing on Summits and striding on valleys is so much more enriching? Learning to appreciate the particularities and idiosyncrasies of the different people and cultures is the framework of future compassionate and tolerant leaders, that will change this world to a better place. This is our passion. Come join us!
