Tuition and Financial Aid

An independent school is a true investment in your child. The faculty, staff, administration and board at Summit feel privileged each day to live our mission: Summit School provides a challenging curriculum within a caring environment to help students develop their full potential. Summit has more than 85 years with a history of excellence and innovation that inspires us to challenge and support each child.

At Summit, our educators’ daily work with children, families and colleagues creates habits of mind that our students carry with them the rest of their lives. The Summit experience transforms students through our enduring, stable values which bring to life our fundamental commitment to inspiring learning.

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.
 

Innovation

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.
