Celebrating Summit Graduates and Their Achievements

Wed. 05/29/2019

As May comes to a close, members of The Summit School Class of 2019 are making final decisions about where they will attend high school.  Summit is incredibly proud of the more than 500 students who have graduated from our school. With 98% of our alumni successfully completing high school – above the national average for all students at 83.2% and well above average for students in the public system who have been classified with a specific learning disability at 70.8% – The Summit School experience is nothing short of life changing.

Some Summit School 8th graders and their families have already made a decision about high school and have been accepted into schools that include:

  • Annapolis Area Christian School, Annapolis, MD
  • Broadneck High School, Annapolis, MD
  • The Calverton School, Huntingtown, MD
  • DeMatha Catholic High School, Hyattsville, MD

  • The Gunston School, Centerville, MD
  • Mount de Sales Academy, Catonsville, MD
  • Mount Saint Joseph High School, Baltimore, MD
  • Wye River Upper School, Centerville, MD.

Summit welcome dozens of alumni each year as they visit campus to catch up with a favorite teacher, participate in an event, ask for advice, talk with our 7th and 8th graders about high school, or a myriad of other reasons. One alumnus recently remarked, “It’s not that I came back to Summit, it’s that I never really left.”   Members of The Summit School Class of 2015, now graduating from high school, have been accepted into the following colleges:
