Welcome to Summit Christian Academy

At Summit Christian Academy, we offer a Bible-centered and academically challenging education for students in Northeastern Pennsylvania! We would love to have you join our school family in 2019-2020. Students can now enroll for five-day-a-week preschool, kindergarten and grades 1 to 12.


Summit Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

The students and staff of Summit Christian Academy want to acknowledge the generosity of the following businesses which supported our Meal Pack-a-Thon this spring.  They provided the ingredients for the 10,000 macaroni and cheese meals we packed for local food banks as well as making it possible to provide each student with a special T-shirt for the day.  A BIG THANK YOU to all!!
