Sumner Academy provides our students a powerful place to learn.

See your child eager to take on each day, excited to see their teachers, and ready to share their experiences with you when the day is done.

At Sumner Academy, we believe that every student can find academic success. We also know that each child learns differently based on the individual's strengths and interests. Our learning environment will inspire each student to achieve their maximum academic potential. We believe in fostering social and personal responsibility and implementing these beliefs with vision, passion and dedication.

We take a wide variety of factors into consideration when developing our curriculum: academic vigor, developmentally-appropriate practices, emotional well being, and critical thinking. We want our students to be engaged across a variety of learning styles.

Strong Relationships

A crucial benefit for PK-8 schools is the long-lasting relationships that are formed between staff and students. Teachers set rigorous expectations but also provide a nurturing, supportive environment for them to reach their full potential. Students often get to work with peers in other grades, further contributing to developing strong relationships. Sumner Academy students feel a strong sense of belonging, acceptance, and confidence.

An Unmatched Environment

At Sumner Academy, students are immersed in engaging and dynamic curriculums, challenged to innovate and create in our IDEA Hub, and encouraged to express themselves through the arts. Our beautiful yet secure campus enables students to develop personal responsibility and stewardship as they work in the pollinator garden, monitor our creek health, or walk anywhere on our certified wildlife campus.

Personalized Attention

With an average of classroom size of thirteen, our teachers have the ability to meet every student where they are. Our student-centered approach to education gives us the autonomy to select the best curriculum materials for our students while ensuring that each student's needs are being met. Your student will feel heard and supported as they learn and develop new skills.
