What is The Summit Academy?
We are an independent, classical, college preparatory high school for young men and women, with a vision of providing single-sex instruction on a shared coeducational campus. Our mission is rooted in the Catholic Tradition. We offer a unique opportunity to develop the mind and body in a profound education experience that engages the whole person.
How is The Summit Unique?
We seek to provide a rich academic program based on the Great Books and Liberal Arts Traditions that have withstood the test of time. Our curriculum, course track, and most fundamentally our instruction in the classroom (and beyond) are structured to strengthen our students' engagement with the world. Our students become strong and deep critical thinkers as they engage in an expert guidance in the Liberal Arts.
We are committed to the lordship of Jesus Christ and this is in no way extraneous to the question of academic excellence. The questions of education ultimately come down to the human questions. Who are we, and what is our place in the world? What are we doing and why are we doing it? Man cannot truly know himself or the world in which he lives without seeking to know his origin, namely the One in whose image he or she is made. Our mission is to ground students in an education that opens them to the realization of who they are called to be in Christ.
What they are called to be is nothing short of the very Glory of God. As Saint Ireneaus proclaims in our school motto: "The Glory of God is Man Fully Alive"
Why support The Summit?
Our mission is specific, but also simple. We strive to provide our students with an environment and curriculum that ensures they aren't withering away behind a desk, counting down the days until summer. We want them to grow through challenge, to always strive for more, to become their fullest selves. This is why The Summit Academy places an emphasis not only on Classical learning and STEM Programming, but also on Outdoor Leadership and Services Projects. With your support, we will be able to provide this type of unique scholastic environment to more and more students each year. We will be able to expand our programs, and ensure our faculty lives up to the standard that our students deserve.
