Answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive can be found below. Don’t see your question? Call our office for more information! We'd love to hear from you.
- Can my child visit your school?
Yes! We offer “shadow days” for your child to experience a day in the life of a Summit student. Call us to schedule your tour.
- Are you affiliated with Grace Bible Church?
Summit Christian School is graciously hosted on the campus of Grace Bible Church. While some of our families may attend this church, the school and the church are operated separately and autonomously. Families at Summit attend churches all over the Sacramento metro area, which makes for a truly inter-denominational community representative of the body of Christ.
- Do you have a uniform?
Summit has an established uniform policy for all students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. The following is a generalized explanation of our uniform code. More details are available in the student/parent handbook, available on RENWEB.
GIRLS’ Uniform Requirements:
Shirts – Only collared polo shirts are permitted (long or short sleeved) in school colors (navy blue, light blue, white, yellow).
Pants – Khaki, navy blue, and blue denim pants and capri pants are permitted.
Shorts/Skirts/Jumpers-Khaki or navy blue shorts or “jean” shorts, skirts and jumpers are acceptable.
BOYS’ Uniform Requirements:
Shirts – Only collared polo shirts are permitted (long or short sleeved) in school colors (navy, white, light blue, yellow).
Pants – Khaki, navy blue and blue denim pants are permitted.
Shorts- Khaki, navy blue, and “jean” shorts are acceptable.
Uniforms may be purchased from any store as long as they meet the above requirements.
- Why is Kindergarten a full-day program?
Summit offers a full-day Kindergarten program to provide more opportunities to develop both academic and social skills in the students. The longer day offers a more relaxed atmosphere for learning, while allowing the teacher to provide individualized attention to meet the academic needs of each student. A full-day program also allows for more enrichment activities, such as field trips, art and music not often found in half-day programs. Check out a schedule of a typical day in Kindergarten. The students adapt well to the full day and have a quiet time after lunch to help with the transition. The free play time at the end of the day is important in developing social skills like teamwork, cooperation, sharing and conflict resolution.

- Elementary and Middle School 8:30am-3:15pm
