Achieving the Vision: December 2018 Construction Update

The Summit Center—the school’s first gymnasium and auditorium—is nearing completion! In addition to serving student athletes with a fully-equipped gym, the building will include music and art education classrooms. Some of the latest construction updates include: 

  • Completed: Basketball goal installations, septic system upgrades, drywall, window and doors, HVAC system, power, downspouts and storm drains
  • In Progress: Interior finishes, sidewalks
  • What’s Next: Gym floor installation, parking lot and landscaping!

We hope to host our conference's basketball tournament in the gym in early February. It's been truly amazing to watch this dream become a reality and the excitement will only continue as we break ground on the high school building in January.


Building Our Future: September 2018 Construction Update 

Since the groundbreaking this spring, Summit has made rapid progress on the construction of Summit Center—the school’s first gymnasium and auditorium. In addition to serving student athletes with a fully-equipped gym, the 18,656 square foot building will include state-of-the-art classrooms for music and art education. Some of the exciting construction updates include:

As the Summit Center nears completion, the high school budgeting and permitting process is in full swing. We look forward to embarking on the high school building phase as soon as possible and will actively communicate construction progress with our school community and donors.

This is an unprecedented time for all of us and we hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this dream become a reality for the entire Summit community. Check back for more construction milestones!
