When your child is struggling in school, investing in their education is invaluable to their future. Early intervention is important for students with learning differences. 

Current and Alumni Summit Families report that The Summit School gave their child the foundation they needed to succeed in High School, College, and beyond...


  • Tuition for the 2024-2025 academic year is $36,743.

  • Fees associated with enrollment are described here.

  • We offer 3 payment plan options:
    • Payment in full

    • Semi-annual payments

    • 9 consecutive equal payments

  • All tuition contracts require an initial deposit which is applied toward the current year tuition balance.

  • All families are required to enroll in FACTS Tuition Management System.


  • The Summit School is committed to helping families who may not be able to afford the full tuition. Financial aid is awarded to families on the basis of demonstrated need, the number of families applying for aid, and the total amount of scholarship money available. Once financial assistance is awarded, The Summit School strives to continue financial support in subsequent years provided financial need has been demonstrated and financial obligations to the school for the preceding year have been met. Summit actively seeks private donations and support from foundations in order to offer financial assistance to our families.

  • A request for financial aid information does not influence the decision to accept or decline a student for admission to The Summit School. We offer NEED-based financial aid. Award decisions are made without regard to race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin or religion. All financial aid information is held strictly confidential.
  • Applying for Financial Aid:
    • Complete and submit the FACTS Tuition Aid Online application. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Summit’s Business Office at 410-798-0005.
    • Notification of awards is given to new and returning families by May/June.
    • Mid-year applicants may apply for financial aid and will be notified prior to enrollment.

My son is graduating from high school with distinction. The decision to attend The Summit School was both difficult and one of the best decisions our family ever made. I cannot overstate how The Summit School lays the foundation for success.Alumni Parent
