Our Work

 

Our Story

Summit Learning Institute (SLI) was founded by a husband and wife team--Dr. NNeka Allen-Harrison and Dr. Chris Harrison. The couple founded SLI after developing a growing passion to help people take charge of their lives in order to achieve their personal and professional goals.


Dr. NNeka Allen-Harrison, Ed.D.

Managing Partner & Instructor


I was raised in Oakland, CA, and taught in a local public school. I was an underperforming student and did not realize my misfortune until my early twenties. Imagine my surprise when I sat in a community college classroom for the first time without proper preparation—I was dispirited. The deprivation of good teaching engendered my lack of academic readiness and self-confidence. Fortunately, I eventually encountered caring educators through supplemental support. During several months of intense self-discovery and personal development, I discovered NNeka. My true academic journey began at my alma mater—Clark Atlanta University. I went from low-performing to academic excellence!

Dr. Chris Harrison, Ed.D.

Managing Partner & Instructor


I was raised in a single-parent home by my mother in East Oakland, CA where she helped me realize the positive effects that religious/extra-curricular (Community), educational (School), and familial (Parental) efforts can have on helping youth overcome the challenges that often mitigate the success of students in urban areas. This led to my development of a foundational regard for family, faith, education, and community. I believe that education is a path to a higher quality of life, a way of preparation for purposeful living, and a doorway to realizing dreams, addressing social dilemmas, and leaving a mark of excellence on the hearts and minds of present and future generations.
