Welcome from our Founders

Welcome to Summit Academy! We are a co-educational school founded in 2017 with students in junior primary to grade nine. Academic rigour, active learning – both in and out of the classroom – and daily physical activity are the foundation of our schools approach to educating our passionate learners. Providing a high-quality education to our children is truly an important responsibility and one that we take seriously.

Students feel safe to express their opinions at Summit Academy – we nurture confidence and a passion for learning to enable our students to relate lessons and subjects to the real world as well as comprehend them in abstract terms.

Our culture is unique. Academic excellence, where our students are encouraged to reach their potential, is blended with values such as integrity, innovation, social justice, respect and collaboration; these values are at the forefront of everything we do.

We also offer sport specific programming, as well as athletic clubs that participate in interscholastic sports to enhance our school spirit and community feel. Education is a gift and educating children is our passion – we hope you will contact us for a visit soon!

Warm regards,


Robert O’Brien and Devin Hartnell
