History and Facts


Keene Summit Leadership Academy is part of the Keene Independent School District complex of schools.  While Keene Elementary serves grades Pre-K through 2nd grade, the Summit Leadership Academy (SLA) is compiled of 3rd through 5th grade.  The SLA was a school inside of a school that started in 2018 before becoming its own school and acquiring the new name of Summit Leadership Academy in 2021.

Like the rest of Keene ISD, the Summit is "Home of the CHARGERS" and is the birthplace of our Keene 22.  The Keene 22 is our list of 22 vital expectations that our students use to guide them to being the best Chargers they can be.  

In the Summit, our students will:

  • exceed growth in leadership and learning
  • experience teamwork
  • have opportunities for academic, social, and physical challenge and achievement
  • be an active involvement in their learning
  • have opportunities to develop and apply leadership skills
  • have hands on learning to connect with all learning styles
  • have grade level challenges each year that honors our Keene 22
  • be initiated and an active participant in our 4 Charger Houses
