Summit Parent Organization

About SPO

As a Summit Parent or Guardian, you are a member of the Summit Parent Organization (SPO). SPO was formed in 2007 as a link between parents, faculty, staff, and the Board of Trustees to enhance communication and foster a partnership to create the best learning environment possible.

To make this partnership successful, parents must play an active role in the school. SPO asks each family to volunteer four times throughout the academic year to assist with the many fundraising and community events at The Summit. 

SPO’s active parent involvement, along with its dedicated faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees, makes The Summit a truly inspiring place for children!
