"Too often we give children answers to remember
rather than problems to solve."
-Roger Lewin


Welcome to the Sumner Academy admissions page! We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about Sumner Academy and our application process.  We think you will find that Sumner Academy offers students a very challenging academic program, as well as athletics and related arts (music, art, Spanish, technology, library and health). Students are considered for admission when the application and all required documents (see Admission Process for required documents) have been submitted to the Admissions Office.

As a school, we are committed to providing the best education for students and to discover and cultivate each child’s unique abilities. Graduates from Sumner Academy attend many of the area private and public schools. The majority of them take honors classes and finish in the top twenty of their class. We have several alumni who were either valedictorian or salutatorian of their classes.

Applicants for admissions are accepted on the basis of test results, previous school records, and personal qualifications without regard to race, color, creed, sexual orientation or national origin. Please feel free to contact us if we can help you in any way as you explore Sumner Academy and begin the application process. We encourage you to schedule a campus visit or a “shadow day” to experience our Sumner Academy family.  Visit Sumner Academy, where creativity is encouraged and learning is fun. 

We look forward to meeting you, providing information, and getting to know your child(ren) and your family.
