Our Story

Summit Has A Building!

Through the generosity of several donors, we have already secured a location. The building is in the heart of Clinton but is in need of renovations to be able to pass code as a school. Would you watch this video about Classical Education below and consider donating so that we can make classical education a reality in Clinton, SC? Thanks in advance for your support!

The Vision Was Born

Conversations about our children and the kind of education that we want for them is what sparked us to pursue starting a charter school. We all want a school that fits the needs of our children and the desires of our families. School choice is something that we feel is very important for parents. We have choices for everything else, why shouldn’t we have choices when it comes to our children’s education?

Windows Were Donated!

Through generous donations from the building owner and local families, we were able to install new energy efficient windows throughout the building. This is a huge improvement to the old broken windows that took up so much of the building. We are finishing up the windows in the next two months. Since replacing the windows, renovations have continued at the hands of local volunteers and families that want to see the school up and running again.  

Official Status Granted

At its April 20, 2018 public board meeting, the Charter Institute at Erskine Board of Trustees voted to conditionally approve the Summit Classical Charter School Charter application. The School is proposed to open in July of 2019.
