Good Things Happen Because Summit Students Rock!

2018 Swim Award Recipients

Summit's students have been making a big splash for their school since our inaugural Swim-A-Thon in 2009. Every year since, our Parents' Association and Swim-A-Thon Committee has helped to raise the stakes:

  • Our students completed over 15,200 laps in 2018 and more than 25 students swam 200+ laps each -- an amazing demonstration that is testament to our students’ determination. Funds raised are helping to support Summit’s Classroom of the Future. Nearly $19,000 was raised to create more engaging and flexible classrooms at the Lower School. Phase 1: new student chairs have been ordered and will be ready for students to use September 2019. Phase 2: introducing sit-stand desk options into classrooms. Phase 3: desks to foster better collaboration and teamwork.

  • In 2017, swimming over 13,500 laps, students raised over $38,200
    to renovate the OT space from floor to ceiling, adding a new recumbent bike, collaborative furniture, expanded storage, activity storage, and new sensory equipment, plus resources for our new home and career skills program.


  • More than 110 students raised nearly $38,000 by swimming over 15,000 laps in 2016. Funds were used to build a brand-new art room at the Lower School from the ground up with new sit-and-stand desks, enhanced Smartboard technology, new art-specific furniture and supplies, and a new gallery space to showcase our students' creativity.

  • In 2015, the Lower School Science Room was renovated from floor to ceiling with new science furniture, fittings, and fixings, thanks to our students who raised over $40,000 in funds and in-kind contributions.

  • Summit students swam more than 20,000 laps and raised over $26,000 in 2014 to help the school buy new laptops and related software to keep up with the fast pace of technology.

  • In 2013, students raised over $30,000 in funds and in-kind contributions to renovate the pool locker rooms.

  • The 2012 Laps for Learning initiative raised over $30,000 for interactive and collaborative learning technology in the Lower School.

  • The 2011 Laps for Laptops initiative involved more than 100 students whose athletic efforts helped to raise $33,000 towards the purchase of 50 new laptops for mobile learning.

  • In 2010, more than $40,000 was contributed to support the Lower School Yard Project.

  • In 2009, during our first Swim-A-Thon, Lower School students raised more than $15,000 to help renovate classrooms.
