Board of Trustees

The Summit Board of Trustees is made up of parent volunteers within the Summit community with a wide variety of professional experience, working to support the Head of School in Summit’s ongoing success.

The Board’s role is one of stewardship: to hold “in trust” the mission and vision of Summit. This includes due diligence on financial stability and planning, careful decision making, and obedience to the laws and bylaws of our non profit school.

The Summit Board operates by Committee: Executive, Finance, and Development.

The Board also supports school-based committees, such as Health and Safety and Marketing.

Summit Board members are nominated by committee, however we are always looking for dedicated parents to help with any and all efforts related to our community. If you would like to learn more about being a part of the Board or of one of our committees, please reach out via our email address:

The best way to let the Board know your feedback is by emailing us. Your feedback will be disseminated to the Board as appropriate.
