About NCSA

New Summit is a non-profit, tuition-free, public charter school in Academy School District D20 serving families with kids ages 3 and up within and around school districts 11, 20, and 49, as well as the Briargate area.

Our school opened grades K-6 on August 22, 2018, with over 500 students. Each year, we have added a grade and now offer grades K-8. We hope to apply for a high school to be added in the future. The Xfinity Center next door is our school gym as well as a place for students to play sports.

New Summit Charter Academy also offers preschool for children ages 3-5 to help with kindergarten readiness. Both free full-day and half-day kindergarten is offered for parents who want this choice for their child along with Before and After School Care to help working families.

Amazing Community

We are not just a school, we are a community. We support our families and small businesses in the Colorado Springs area.

Literacy First

Literacy First is a pillar of New Summit Charter Academy. We understand that in order for a child to access all subjects, he/she must know how to read. This creates a love of learning.


Character Education

At New Summit, we are building a positive school culture through Character Education and Capturing Kids’ Hearts by The Flippen Group to be an immersive, participatory experience.
