At The Summit Preparatory School, we see things differently. As a fully accredited
independent school, our teachers have the freedom to develop an integrated, hands-on curriculum that reflects constant evolutions in technology and culture. Instead of teaching to a test, we teach to a vision: to prepare life-long learners.
By developing the skills of curiosity, creativity and critical-thinking, our students look at challenges from a higher perspective—one that considers content in context, and challenges them to not just have the right answers, but also to ask the right questions.
Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment – The Summit will be offering reimbursement to high school families if their student chooses to take college/university level courses. Faculty and administration recognize the benefits students receive when they participate in college level courses prior to graduation and seek to offer support to families if they choose to pursue these opportunities. High school students may elect to take dual credit or dual enrollment courses. These are college level classes in which students will earn both high school and college credit. Summit families, click here to complete the Dual Credit and Enrollment reimbursement request.
Missouri Seal of Biliteracy – All Summit students who can demonstrate proficiency in 2 or more languages will have the opportunity to earn the Missouri Seal of Biliteracy or the Distinguished Missouri Seal of Biliteracy.
