Global Citizenry: The Key to Empathy

The Summit's mission challenges its community members to develop spiritually, academically, physically, socially and artistically so they can value and improve the ever-changing world in which we live. To this end, educators are passionate about finding ways to encourage students to look beyond their own identities and experiences and see themselves as citizens of the larger world.

World Language

The Summit aims to produce graduates with strong proficiency in French or Spanish. To do that, instruction begins at age two and continues through the senior year. Latin and Mandarin Chinese also become options for Middle and Upper School students.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our coeducational campus serves age two through grade 12. Ethnic minorities comprise about 26% of our student population. About 39% of our student body is  non-Catholic. As a community, we acknowledge our similarities and celebrate our differences.

Global Community

The Summit has a diverse student body with international families from 22 countries. In addition to our expatriate families, The Summit has an enrollment of 20 to 30 international students who are an important part of our commitment to global diversity.
