Affordability

The Summit understands this concern and has approved a new Tailored Tuition Initiative.  Please click here to find out more about our Tailored Tuition Affordability Initiatives or contact Kelley Schiess, Assistant Head of School for Enrollment Management and Special Projects, at 871-4700, ext. 207 or via email for additional information.

Legacy Scholarship
The Summit is pleased to offer a Lower/Middle School Legacy Scholarship. This scholarship was established by the Schilderink family. Priority consideration will be given to students in grades one through six. This scholarship is awarded to those who demonstrate the ability to succeed in the classroom and contribute positively to student life. The student’s family must demonstrate need for financial assistance and complete the Parent's Financial Statement through the National Association of Independent Schools at https://sssbynais.org/parents/. Legacy Scholarships are renewable through grade six. Families who are interested in applying for the Legacy Scholarship should contact Kelley Schiess, Assistant Head of School for Enrollment Management and Special Projects, at 871-4700, ext. 207 or via email

Alumni Scholarship
The Summit Alumni Association offers an Alumni Scholarship for Upper School students. From the time of the school’s inception, academic excellence, Christian service, artistic creativity, physical activity, and social interaction have been the cornerstones of a Summit education. The Alumni Scholarship recognizes students who value these characteristics and exemplify them both inside and outside of the classroom. Families who are interested in applying for the Alumni Scholarship should contact Kelley Schiess, Assistant Head of School for Enrollment Management and Special Projects, at 871-4700, ext. 207 or via email.
