Summit School is a special place. This is a school of exceptional educational experiences wrapped in community. We are a private, independent school strongly rooted in Innovative Teaching, Exceptional Educators, and Thriving Students. Our purpose is to provide your family with the best educational environment for your child while providing your whole family with a community.
Innovative Teaching. Our programs go beyond traditional academics to include enrichment activities that foster student interests and support the whole-child. Our academic program is rigorous and differentiated to meet the needs of our diverse community, and resources are dedicated to supporting students who need advanced studies as well as those who need academic support. Summit School students average two years ahead of the national average in reading, and three years ahead in math.
Exceptional Educators. The staff at Summit School is highly-qualified and Arizona State Certified. They have a wide diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and cultures that help us to broaded the experiences of our students. Many of the members of our team hold advanced degrees and a significant number have been at Summit School for more than fifteen years.
Thriving Students. Our students are the reason we exist. Through exceptional academic rigor, community service, social emotional learning, athletics, public speaking opportunities, and activities that boast empowerment, Summit Students are prepared for acceptance to the Arizona high schools of their choice. Yet, we go beyond high school at Summit. We are a safe space that allows our students to make mistakes, to ask questions, and to grow as a whole person. Summit School graduates are ready to confidently move forward as successful young adults.
Welcome to Summit School. Go Sabrecats!
