Welcome to Summit Academy! We are a co-educational, non-denominational, day school founded in 2017 with students in junior primary to grade nine. Academic rigour, active learning and daily physical activity are the foundation of our school’s approach.
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.
Our culture is unique. Academic excellence, where 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 programs and 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. Contact us for a visit soon.
