From an academic standpoint, our goal is to ensure that students receive an education that prepares them for middle and high school, for undergraduate and graduate pursuits, and, ultimately, for life. We take this responsibility seriously and it shows! Well-rounded, thoughtful, joyful, inquisitive, and socially responsible: this is the description of a Summit Montessori student.
We offer four programs for students:
The Beginners Program is designed to meet the developmental needs of children who are just starting on their educational journeys. (Ages 21–36 months)
Children's House brings together preschool through Kindergarten age students in a dynamic learning environment that addresses their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical developmental needs. (Ages 3–6 years)
The Lower Elementary program engages students in first, second, and third grades in a wide range of academic subjects with a focus on building critical thinking, problem-solving, and research skills. (Ages 6-9)

The Upper Elementary program guides students in grades four through six through greater academic challenges and toward emerging adolescence with an emphasis on organization, independence, and responsibility, as well as respect and curiosity for the world around them. (Ages 9-12)
