The following steps must be completed before an application will be reviewed by the Admission Committee.
- Submit a completed admission application. In an effort to acquaint ourselves with prospective students, an applicant photo - though optional - is appreciated.
- Applicants seeking admission to grades 1-4 must submit a teacher recommendation form and school records from the previous two years. Applicants to grades 1-4 are required to take an entrance test. All tests are administered at The Summit on specific key dates throughout the year. Please contact the Admission Office to register your child for testing.
- Once the application has been submitted, a visit should be scheduled through the Admission Office for applicants entering grades 2-4. Applicants for those grades will visit with their peers from 8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Lunch is provided.
- Once the admission process is complete, The Admission Office will communicate to the parents regarding the Admission Committee's decision. If the grade level the applicant is applying for is full, notification will occur.
- Parents who would like to learn more about The Summit are encouraged to meet with an Admission Associate and tour the campus.
