New SUmmit K-8 Enrollment Process
Welcome to Admissions for New Summit Charter Academy. Our school is a non-profit, tuition-free, public charter school of choice.
The New Summit Charter Academy admissions process has multiple steps and we recognize and appreciate that this may be a new experience for you. The steps to enrollment have been implemented with care and concern for both our current and future students and we welcome any comments or questions you may have during this process.
Step 1: Fill out the form below to start the enrollment process. This is a non-binding form and it is used to show your interest in our school. This will also automatically sign you up for our newsletter for parents who want to continue to get information about our school.
Step 2: Our registrar will send you a pre-enrollment form about your student’s school history.
Step 3: Once acceptance is determined, an acceptance letter will be sent to your email with instructions on what to bring to the district. Your student is not enrolled until they have enrolled at the district.
We accept students from all districts, however, we give priority to those in this order:
- Founding Families
- Staff Children
- Siblings of Currently Enrolled Students
- D20 Residents
Eligible students will be considered for admission on a first-come, first-serve basis and without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, religion, ancestry, or gender.
New Summit Charter Academy accepts students for Kindergarten through 7th grade with the exception of children who have been expelled from their previous school or have other pending disciplinary or truancy issues. NSCA may also admit students who have previously declined enrollment or dis-enrolled on a case-by-case basis.
New Summit Charter Academy reserves the right to decline enrollment to students if false, misleading or incomplete information is included on the enrollment documents. NSCA also reserves the right to deny enrollment requests from students residing outside the Academy School District 20 when such enrollment would have a negative impact on the efficient use of district and school resources.
Diakonia Preschools partners with New Summit Charter Academy to offer New Summit Preschool. The learning program is designed to nurture children’s cognitive, social, physical and social-emotional skills with a curriculum that capitalizes on their natural curiosity. Experienced, caring teachers create a safe learning space, promoting development through planned investigations and play-based activities. The maximum number of students per classroom is 8:1. Attending Diakonia Preschool does not guarantee you a spot at New Summit. Diakonia is not enrolled with Academy District 20 and they are our THIRD PARTY PROVIDER.
For Kindergarten, your child must have been born ON OR BEFORE October 1, 2015. We have FREE full-day classes, AM half-day classes, and PM half-day classes (depending on interest).

Students are assigned to a homeroom which is the class they start in each day. The homeroom teacher they are assigned is the main teacher to answer questions and communicate events and assignments. All students are required to wear uniforms. We keep a respectful and friendly atmosphere and are physically and emotionally safe. Our emphasis is always on a love of learning.
