Summit Annual Fund

dan-giddensSummit Christian Academy is a leader in distinctive Christian education, providing a dynamic academic and social environment that inspires students to know God; maximize their potential; discover their purpose; and make a difference in their world. We are committed to providing an unsurpassed educational experience for all students and a thriving community for all Summit families.

And we deliver. Every year, members of our senior class receive millions in academic scholarship offers from colleges and universities across the country. Our students on average perform well above the Oklahoma average on the ACT, and we have an impressive number of students offered full scholarships.

It takes a great and motivated faculty, small class sizes, and facilities to make it happen. And it takes your help. We simply cannot afford the quality and results we want through tuition revenues alone.

The Annual Fund is a vital component to our financial stability. Your Annual Fund gift supports key elements of the Summit experience. With strong Annual Fund support from the Summit community, we can continue to provide and enhance the excellent education experience for all students.

Your Annual Fund Gift is our Framework for Success! As superintendent of this great school, I have a goal of 100% participation every year. Please, give every year and make a difference every day.

Bridging The Gap

Like most Christian schools, our tuition price does not cover the full cost of educating a student. In order to keep tuition affordable and maintain our level of distinction as an institution of Christian learning we are charged with raising a portion of our operating budget each year through contributions.
