Summit School both welcomes and encourages applicants. Please follow the steps below if you are interesting in applying for admission:
1.) While Summit offers a variety of exciting ways to learn through projects and self-initiated exploration, this type of learning may or may not be the best fit for your child. We suggest that you carefully consider your child's strengths and areas needing development, as well as his/her educational learning style before enrolling your child.
2.) To be put on the waiting list in grades 1-8, parents need to come into the office and fill out an application. The application will be stamped with the date it is received. The child will then be placed on the list according to the date on the application. Students will remain on the list for two years, at which time parents will need to reapply.
3.) Kindergarten Enrollment - Parents may call in for an orientation date the school year before their child enters kindergarten. We will start taking phone calls on the first Monday in September after school starts. Details about the tour will be left on the answering machine.
4.) When there is an opening you will be contacted by the Summit School office to schedule a family interview. If you have a student entering grades 5-8, he/she will need to complete the student questionnaire, and you will need to complete the parent questionnaire, regardless of your child's grade level. While Summit School is open to all students, it is important to be sure the student and the educational setting are a good fit. The interview allows you to learn more about the educational philosophies of the school, as well as provides additional information about your child. This is a unique opportunity for a Summit School representative to answer any questions which may arise during the application process.
