Student Population Demographics
As a public charter school, Summit receives only 75% of the state and county funding of a traditional public school and zero funding for our facilities.
We rely 100% on private donations to build and maintain our campus.
Introducing our New High School Building
This facility will accommodate Summit’s growth and sustain current and future students, K-12.
Located on Summit’s existing land, this location for a new learning facility has proper acreage for 8+ classrooms, indoor/outdoor commons areas, and ample parking
This facility puts us on a path to success in achieving enrollment and financial sustainability goals – the key to Summit’s future
The new building will include traditional classrooms, a science lab, a learning kitchen, rooms for individualized education, an outdoor courtyard, admin offices, and a large commons area.
Based on teacher and student feedback, a separate location offers a distinctive high school experience, while still maintaining a sense of connection as a larger K-12 campus.
The growing middle school can transition to the existing Phase I HS Building for an improved learning environment for K-8
Summit’s financial sustainability goals aim to enroll 36 students per grade, with two sections of 18 to honor our commitment to small class sizes.
The new HS facility and the below transition of classrooms within our existing campus layout position the Summit for long-term success.
