Summit Prep in Springfield News-Leader
Hopefully everyone has seen last Wednesday's article about The Summit's plans to move into our new space on Walnut Lawn for the 2018-2019 school year.

The article has done a great job of stimulating interest in and awareness of our school. We have seen an uptick in inquiries for possible admission and even received letters of interest from educators asking about teaching positions as we move and grow our student population. Mr. Currao, Summit's Development Officer, attended a couple of community events this week (a Junior League event and Chamber of Commerce event) and commented that a majority of the people he spoke with were aware of The Summit, some of whom referenced the article.

Let's keep the energy up! Thank you to all who continue to wear your Summit Spirit Wear out and about, to those to tell their friends about the great things we do at The Summit, and those who share/like/comment on our social media posts.
