Summit School Centennial | 1917-2017

On Sunday, September 10, 2017, Summit School alumnae and their guests gathered to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Summit School. The celebration included a reception at Summit School, now the K-5 Goodrich Campus, and a program in the Sarah Converse auditorium highlighting the rich history, songs, and traditions of Summit School. Summit School memorabilia, pictures, and uniforms were also on display.

Centennial Reception: In honor of the 100th Anniversary, all Summit School alumnae were invited back to Summit School's Goodrich Campus for a reunion and reception. Over 100 alumnae and their guests were in attendance for the celebration which featured displayed uniforms, photos, and memorabilia, as well as special performance.

Centennial Performance: In conjunction with the Centennial Reception, a special program was created to honor the history and legacy of Summit School. The program was performed by 18 current SPA students and was based on the book Summit School: An Affectionate Reminiscence by Elphiah Nichols, as well as interviews with Summit alumnae.
