The Annual Fund For Excellence
The Annual Fund for Excellence is the primary way in which parents, alumni and friends provide philanthropic gifts to The Summit each year. It directly supports the mission of The Summit by providing financial resources for program enrichment, financial assistance for students, and faculty recruitment, retention and professional development.
Your gift is important in providing The Summit Advantage.
Leaders of Character Society
Among the supporters who help The Summit flourish each year is a select group of people who set a pace and tone. Their leadership, generosity and trust in the school and its mission assures their membership in the Leaders of Character Society.
Leaders of Character are organized into giving circles. The Summit's fiscal year operates from July 1 through June 30. Gifts received by June 30 are counted toward recognition in that fiscal year.

Angel Donor Program
Did you know that you can make a significant difference in the lives of students? Over 1/3 students who attend The Summit receive gifts from people like you to make their dreams of a Summit education a reality. The Angel Donor program is designed to assist the education of a student who has the potential and the desire but is in need of financial assistance. Over $3 million dollars is allocated for this purpose, and the Angel Donors are making this possible. For an investment of $2,500 or greater with a minimum commitment of four years, you can partner with a student to assist their fulfillment of this dream. Your partnership in the Angel Donor Program places you in the “Leaders of Character Society” of the Annual Fund for Excellence.
