We hope to welcome you in our nationally accredited, highly excelling school!

An education is one of the most important, impactful gifts we give to our children. Selecting the school that best fits your child’s educational needs is essential. That is what our admissions process is all about.

Summit School of Ahwatukee is proud to offer a nationally accredited, NAEYC preschool, with an engaging, challenging environment for social, emotional, & cognitive growth. Our outstanding elementary and middle schools are also nationally accredited, by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), a division of AdvancED®.

We provide an atmosphere that fosters learning and creativity of teachers and students. We attract and retain extraordinary teachers who are the very heart and soul of Summit School of Ahwatukee; teachers who are experts in their fields and who love working with students.

This is something you should experience. We encourage you to schedule a tour – see our students at work and play, meet our teachers and students and check out our campus. You have to see it to believe it!

Summit School of Ahwatukee will enroll students throughout the school year, in classes where openings remain.

New students must first complete the Admissions Process.

When reviewing applicants for entrance, the admissions team tries to select students that will make a difference in our school community. In order to ensure a good match between the student and school, several factors, where applicable, are taken into consideration:

  • academic aptitude and achievement
  • transcript of grades from previous school
  • teacher recommendations
  • participation in extracurricular activities
  • evidence of social-emotional maturity, initiative, and responsibility

Affording a high quality private education

A Summit education is an investment in your child’s future. Our needs-based tuition assistance program strives to assist families in providing an exceptional, independent private school education for their children. Arizona also provides a private school tax credit that can be used to pay your child’s tuition.

A Word from the Founders

“When we helped co-found Summit School of Ahwatukee in 2000, we were looking for a strong academic education for our three children.  Summit has far exceeded our expectations.

Throughout the years, the dedicated and passionate teachers challenged our children scholastically and guided them socially and emotionally.  The Summit educators embraced and nurtured the unique potential in each child.  Thanks to Summit our children are excelling in high school and college, equipped with the skills and confidence needed to thrive.  Summit has been more than a school to us; it has been a family.  We are eternally thankful for the foundation Summit has given our children.”
