Welcome Class of 2028

The Summit Country Day School invites your family to explore the endless opportunities in our Upper School. We understand that the admission process for incoming freshmen can be overwhelming. If it’s to schedule a shadow day or parent information session, explain our tuition assistance or scholarship procedures, connect you with a teacher or coach, or simply sit and tell you more about our school, please contact our office.  

We offer you many opportunities to explore the campus, get a feel for a heritage that dates back to 1890, see our 21st century technology, learn more about our academic initiatives in action and meet other students and parents before freshman year begins. Please sign up for our events below.
