What makes Summit different from other schools?

Whole Child Education

Our educators are concerned with helping children become not only lifelong learners but good people. Each and every adult in our learning community is an educator.

Active Learning

Curiosity is the basic fuel of learning. At Summit, we don’t waste it and we don’t squelch it—we leverage it. We believe knowledge that is earned is the most enduring.


From our Lower School Design and Technology studio to our 9th grade Summit Coffee Project, Summit students learn to think creatively and approach challenges with a positive, fresh perspective.
