Summit Sabbatical

The dictionary describes a sabbatical as, “a break or change from normal routine” or “an extended period of leave from one’s customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills or training”.


Step away for a season to refresh, refocus, and reset. 

Summit Sabbatical is an 8-month course of study, tailored to a select few “non-traditional” students, 29 and older, who choose to take this brief season to engage their minds, skills, and energy toward God’s purpose in their lives. 


The Sabbatical experience gives students both the freedom to seek God, as well as the knowledge base and the tools to be effective wherever Christ may lead.

Career professionals, pastors, ministry leaders, teachers, and applicants with compelling life stories that fall outside the bracket of our traditional program are a few examples of the type of student that may choose to apply for this unique year of study.

Sabbatical students have an individualized Summit experience curated to each unique situation. Although Sabbatical students do attend classes with traditional students, they may or may not participate in other aspects of the traditional student program.


The Summit Sabbatical experience is selective and does not exceed  8-12 students per year. Applicants must be residents of the United States.
