My family and I had reasonable expectations and unfortunately, we were very disappointed. My children had both good experiences and bad, however, many of their complaints were the inconsistencies from some of the teachers; allowing the favored students to get away with things while others were held accountable. My personal experience was, sadly, a negative one. One of my concerns was the complete lack of standards regarding conflict of interest among employees and those in leadership roles, including PTF (parent teacher fellowship, much like PTO/PTA), school board, etc., which leaves concerned parents feeling that there isn't a safe place to air grievances, offer constructive criticism or suggest ideas that could potentially improve the environment of the school. My advice to someone considering Summit Christian Academy would be to PRAY about it, visit and research every Christian school in your area and take your time. For those of us seeking a Christian education for our children, it's fair to expect a certain level of support, kindness, and compassion, which we found lacking at this school.
