What makes an education at Summit unique?


Summit Christian Academy’s uniqueness centers on our commitment to combine academic excellence with Christian education. Dr. Roy W. Lowrie, Jr. said, “No child should incur an academic penalty to get a Christian education.” Our school was founded by teachers and parents that have experienced and taught in both the public and private school environment. We seek to implement the best of each experience in order to create a holistic education with a Christ-centered focus. Summit Christian Academy utilizes the A Beka curriculum, a trusted faith-based curriculum. In addition, we offer weekly Summit Specials: Library, Art, Music, P.E., and Spanish (Grades 1-2).
