Is Sumner Academy a good fit for my child?
Sumner Academy is proud to have students with a wide variety of interests, gifts, and talents. Students who will benefit from an accelerated academic environment and who display good character qualities often find Sumner Academy to be the ideal school. Parents who expect to be involved in their children's education and who want their children exposed to a variety of curriculum components (robotics, Shakespeare plays, Ukulele Club, and adventure education to name a few such components) tend to be happiest at Sumner Academy.

Will I get One-On-One Time?
Admissions Preview Day is meant to serve multiple families in a low-pressure, group tour environment. While we are happy to answer general questions, if you require further assistance, feel free to schedule a tour with our Director of Admissions at another date.
When should we apply?
