Reimagining Preschool Education

The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) is a child-centered and research-informed curriculum specially designed for children aged 2-5. It acknowledges best practices and aligns with the developmental needs of early childhood education, empowering teachers to deliver a multidisciplinary curriculum. Our exceptional team of early childhood educators engages in extensive professional development annually, guaranteeing the successful execution of our play-based preschool curriculum.

Beautiful Campus

Summit Academy takes pride in its picturesque campus, situated adjacent to Lake Waterloo in a historic 10,000-square-foot building that was once a part of the residence of the late Sir Stafford Sands. Were you aware that our parking lot was previously a sprawling rose garden? Our campus features air-conditioned classrooms, a library, multipurpose rooms, and access to a swimming pool on the property. Additionally, we have recently upgraded our playground facilities.


The school achieves academic excellence by having well-trained, experienced educators teach an innovative curriculum in a student-centered environment. Summit Academy utilizes a number of top programs to meet its educational objectives. Every student follows a research-based core curriculum. Each and every program used at Summit has been specially selected by our curriculum team to ensure the very highest quality of education.

Progressive Education

Summit Academy uses a progressive, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. We are proud to be the only school in The Bahamas to offer the International Early Years Curriculum and International Primary Curriculum. We aim to foster students who are innovative, creative thinkers and problem solvers. Our program is rooted in the principles of constructivism and constructionism and prepares students for the future of work. Our curriculum offers our students a solid foundation upon which they are able to build at the high school level.

While we empower our students to become the best version of themselves, we also promote a culture of caring and kindness.
