About Us

The Summit School is a not-for-profit full-day special education program approved by the State of Maryland for students with learning differences (specific learning disabilities) such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, developmental language disorders, executive functions disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and is accredited by the Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools (AIMS). 


The school was established in September 1989 to promote literacy and success for bright children, in grades 1-8, ages 6-15, with the goal of facilitating success in a mainstream high school environment and college. The instructional program offers an integrated, targeted curriculum that emphasizes active teaching and learning, research-based methodologies and sensitivity to students’ unique learning profiles. We meet students where they are academically and bring them up to where they need to be. Our students receive individualized instruction in reading, written language, and math, and we provide mainstream, grade level instruction in science and social studies that incorporates differentiated instruction to meet each student’s individual cognitive-academic-linguistic profile. Our students matriculate to mainstream high schools and most attend and complete college. At The Summit School, instruction is not only rigorous, it is relevant. Students learn and apply concepts as they relate to real world issues. Summit’s program is a well-rounded program, offering students classes in performing and visual arts, STEM, outdoor education, and physical education as well as competitive sports at the middle school level. The Summit School is located eight miles south of Annapolis, MD. Please visit our website: www.thesummitschool.org
