  • Summit's Impact Education program is a vital part of its educational philosophy and lies at the core of Summit's mission. Impact Education is realized primarily through training in missions that runs throughout the school from the youngest pre-schooler to the most mature Senior. In its missions training, Summit strives to:
    1) Teach by example that missions ("reaching out") is a lifestyle God desires for all of us
    2) Encourage students to "reach out" to others by serving in their homes and communities; among the hurting, the lonely, and the needy; by studying God's Word; and following Christ's example
    3) Teach students to pray for the people they serve and to learn through prayer what is on God's heart
    4) Introduce students to the exciting ways God's people are "reaching out" in their communities and around the world
    5) Create an environment where the students, in gratitude for what Christ has done for them, desire to see others come to know Christ as their Savior
    6) Help students learn about other countries, cultures, and environments in which missionaries serve
    7) Partner with other missions ministries on an ongoing basis â" building relationships with them and providing opportunities for students to interact with missionaries on and away from their mission fields
    8) Incorporate Summit staff members and parents into mission outreaches
    9) Present missions as a career, providing opportunities for students to recognize and answer the call to career missions.

School Reviews

We enrolled our daughter at Summit 3 years ago for Kindergarten. The past 3 years have been great. The teachers are wonderful to work with and have the students best interest at heart. We love the family feel of the school and would recommend it to anyone.

Amazing academics and strong Biblical teaching are two huge benefits of attending Summit. Our son is graduating next month and is well prepared for college as indicated by his ACT/SAT scores. He has many college options as a result of the great education he received there since first grade.
