"Our society cannot afford a two-tiered system in which the affluent have access to superior education, while everyone else is subjected to a dull and incoherent classroom experience. Academic excellence, educational equity, and fairness demand a strong foundation of knowledge for all learners."
– E. D. Hirsch
New Summit Charter will deliver an academically rigorous yet warm and caring environment, partnering with parents to prepare productive members of society, while instilling a lifetime love of learning.
Mission of New Summit Charter Academy
To build an educational community that emphasizes a love of learning, and inspires and empowers students to reach new summits.
Why New Summit?
Because we believe that the future belongs to, and will come from, the well educated children of today.
Because we believe in free choice, and that parents should be able to choose how to direct the tax money they spend on schools, to the education program of their choosing for their children.
Because we believe that the choice of schools that are either overcrowded, underperforming, or cut off from enrollment, are not choices at all.
