Leading the Way Campaign for The Summit

We are operating under the belief that one cannot be an effective leader of character without problem-solving skills, creativity and a commitment to equity.

When The Summit began our strategic planning process, we had two key questions:
1. What skills and experiences will children need for success in the future?
2. What does the school need to do to deliver on that and sustain itself long term?

We asked business and educational leaders what the nation needs regarding the future workforce, and they told us that our children need to be better equipped in character, leadership, creativity and problem-solving. Our response was to develop a Strategic Plan that seeks to equip our students with the skills, habits of mind and experiences they will need to succeed in the fast-changing years ahead. We are being faithful to a Notre Dame-inspired mission that calls us to develop leaders of character who will become the changemakers and peacemakers Christ calls all of us to be. Leading the Way is a comprehensive fundraising campaign over the next five years to support the four planks of the strategic plan:

  • Developing Leaders of Character for the 21st Century.
  • Enhancing our Value Proposition.
  • Strengthening the school’s Financial Model.
  • Building a Culture of Philanthropy.
