Our Educational Philosophy 

Our mission is to provide an exceptional educational experience that can transform children into leaders of character who have the knowledge and skills to make the world a better place. 

  • We take a holistic approach to education based on the values of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who founded our school.

  • Our faculty mantra is to know, understand, proactively guide and love every child. We expect excellence and build on each child’s God-given talents. Our programs strive for academic excellence for all students according to their unique gifts. 

  • We model kindness and caring. We emphasize compassion for the less fortunate. 

  • We believe the environment in which the students’ skills are developed is important to the formation of the individual.  

  • In everything we do, we intentionally educate our students in character-based leadership and creative problem-solving. 

  • While The Summit is independent, we share in the educational mission of the Catholic Church.  We are one of the most diverse Catholic schools in Cincinnati. Regardless of faith tradition, sexual orientation, ethnic or socio-economic background, The Summit seeks to embrace all children.
