We moved to Austin about a quarter of the way through the school year and quickly chose Summit for our child after talking to several schools. It has been a good choice thus far. We've found it to be a school with good academic standards and a solid Christian foundation. Of course it's the people who ultimately make a school exceptional, but one of the things we have loved about Summit is the campus. It's so nice to know our child can get outside at times throughout the day as he walks from one class to another. Another plus for Summit is the student population. All the students in my son's class were just really nice, cute kids, which is a plus since there was a behavior problem in his preschool in another city. Dealing with that gets old fast. I haven't experienced the negative issues that other reviewers have written about so I can't say whether favoritism is a problem. I hope that it will not be in the future. No school is perfect and it's hard to completely get away from cliques and gossip, even at the best Christian schools. I just avoid those things, try to be positive and supportive of my child's teachers, and do what I can to make the year a great experience.

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.

Summit staff, teachers, and leadership partnered with us in helping our 3 young granddaughters. The advancements in education, social skills, health, as well as their knowledge, and understanding of the Bible Grew at levels we never dreamed possible. The safety security is very good too. They teachers poured themselves into teaching, and building trust, and Love for the children. It was, and is the greatest educational experience I've ever seen. Thanks Summit

Summit Christian Academy is equipped to support many learning styles and differences through it's SOAR (students overcoming academic roadblocks) program. This program allows students with learning differences to obtain a 504 plan when needed. The 504 plan is a plan which is developed in partnership with parents and educators to support the student so that they can achieve their highest potential. There is an on-site Learning Center where students can come to master their class content as well as taking tests, study skill coaching, reading and spelling classes within an academic language program. Classroom teachers are certified through the private school certification process and most are also certified through the state's teacher certification process. All teachers have been trained for teaching through differentiation as well as have the heart, compassion, and care of seeing the students succeed.

This school is great if you kid has "favor" with his or her teachers. If not, then there's nothing they can do that will be good enough. They seem to care more about athetics than grades. That was the reason we left public school in the first place. This will be our last year here. We're moving our child to another school for next school year.

Two of my children attend SCA . My experience has been great. I have found great support and communication from the teachers. The most valuable thing for me as a mother, is to know my children are getting an affordable, exceptional, christian education. I am truly happy to have chosen SCA for my children.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
