High Expectations, Excellent Results

The Summit is committed to the total development of students’ minds, hearts, and bodies. Yet first and foremost, we are a school – one that works diligently to maintain a reputation for academic excellence. Our renowned curriculum and devoted faculty, whose tenure averages 20 years, uphold the high standards we have maintained for more than a century.

Our academic program is organized around three schools: the Lower School, which incorporates our Montessori preschool and the grades one through four; the Middle School (grades five through eight); and the Upper School (grades nine through 12). The faculty, staff, and directors of each school work together to provide a strong continuum of education attuned to the needs of individual students, with particular attention paid to the transitions between schools. We strive for – and achieve – small class sizes and excellent teacher/student ratios, which currently average 1:9.

Our standards yield returns that both our students and their parents desire. Students in every grade level consistently score above the national average.
