A Word

From Our Board Chair

“In my life I have had the opportunity to pursue many great endeavors. I have learned many things but one lesson outweighs the rest. Hard work and dedication are not enough to sustain a mission. It is the pursuit of something other than self gratification that keeps the mission alive. It is the pursuit of serving others that drives the heart! That is why I’m here as board chair. To serve the “FAMILY” of Summit Classical School in our pursuit of Classical Education.”

– Jeremy Sparks
