Due to COVID-19 and Governor Reynolds’ guidelines, Summit Schools’ Board of Trustees made the decision to cancel our June camps to help ensure health amongst our campers and staff. Summit has transitioned some June camps online for continued community learning and experiences:

Summit also offers online tutoring in a variety of subjects over the summer. If you are interested in tutoring please email our tutoring manager Christina Anderson for rates and availability.

As an independent PreK-8th grade school, Summit transitioned immediately to online learning and instruction after spring break due to the pandemic, and is ready to continue virtually in the fall with our teachers as Google Certified Educators, or resume on campus with our small class sizes (16 children max). Whatever the future holds – Summit will be ready! Summit has also reduced tuition to make our school more affordable during this uncertain time. If you are interested in learning more or enrolling your child(ren), please email us right away to secure your spot for the fall.
