Summit Parents Association

Every parent of a Summit student is automatically a member of the Summit Parents Association. The SPA is committed to building a strong and inclusive parent community dedicated to enhancing the overall student educational experience at The Summit.

The Summit Parents Association (SPA) supports the Mission of The Summit Country Day School and promotes a strong, integrated and diverse community of parents, faculty, staff and students to enhance the education of our children.

Through programs and events, the SPA provides opportunities for parents to connect with one another and make positive contributions through volunteerism. We look forward to meeting you and helping you get connected as a parent at The Summit.

A Message from the 2021 SPA President, Tricia Wiltshire

As the President of the Summit Parents Association for the 2021-2022 school year, I’d like to welcome you to The Summit! My name is Tricia Wiltshire and I’m a proud graduate of the class of '94. My husband Anthony and I have three children who are in the 2nd, 6th, and 8th grades this year. 

As a Summit parent you are automatically a member of the SPA. Participation on any level is welcome. Whether you have time to be a room parent or just want to send in food for a class party, you are contributing to the school. We are all part of the SPA that helps support teachers, students and parents through many events during the school year. After such a long year of being away from each other during Covid, the SPA will be welcoming you and your children with open arms this fall. We are especially excited about our new family connection committee that will focus on helping new families with their transition.

This is your community and we can’t wait to welcome you back in the Fall for an amazing fun filled year. Go Knights!

Tricia Wiltshire, SPA President '21-'22
