Why attend Summit in Georgia?

Our Georgia Summit offers attendees thoughtful lectures, open forum Q&A with our faculty, and small group discussions. Perched on top of Lookout Mountain, students experience the splendor of the panoramic mountain views of Chattanooga, TN, the Tennessee River, historic Civil War-era battlegrounds, and seven adjacent states.

Activities on the mountain include the Incline railway into Chattanooga, Rock City (with magical rock formations, and a stroll along the 4,100-foot Enchanted Trail to Lover’s Leap), dozens of miles of hiking and running trails, and Ruby Falls (the nation’s tallest and deepest underground waterfall). Off-campus activities include white water rafting on the Ocoee River (with five miles of continuous Class IV rapids), paddleboarding, kayaking or canoeing on the Tenessee River, a visit to the Tennessee Aquarium (where you can enjoy playful penguins, touch a stingray, and marvel at otters, giant catfish, and sharks), or stroll across the historic Walnut Street Bridge followed by a picnic along the riverfront at Coolidge Park. There’s something for every interest at Lookout Mountain.
