Why Support Summit?
Tuition alone does not cover the full expense for a student to attend The Summit School. As an independent school and nonprofit organization, Summit operates without the financial support of local or federal taxes. Unlike most independent schools, families do not plan for their child to have a learning difference so many families do not financially plan for the tuition.
Summit relies on the generosity of our community to make up the gap between expenses and revenue from tuition and fees. Fundraising efforts help contribute to a full educational experience for our students. Multiple opportunities for giving are provided throughout the year to enable each family to make a gift when it is best for them.
Every gift has an impact. A high level of family participation in fundraising efforts shows support from within and therefore directly endorses our school when applying for grants and support from foundations and private corporations.
