Summit Fund

Annual Summit Fund

Every year for 50 years, CAC faculty, families, grandparents, alumni, and friends participate in our school’s mission by making significant financial contributions. These gifts are not only significant because of the amount, they are significant because of the impact. When everyone joins together in big and small ways the entire community is elevated. This year we are establishing the annual Summit Fund to lay a solid foundation for CAC to be a school of excellence for the next 50 years.

Every dollar we receive above tuition infuses our students with a distinctively Christian educational experience. 



Why is the Summit Fund SO Important?

Tuition dollars are the framework for our operating budget, but the exceptional value of the education students at CAC receive are funded by your generosity. Every gift from our parents, faculty, staff, board, grandparents, alumni, and friends has an impact on the lives of our students and the quality of their education.

Summit Fund gifts allow the school to provide:

Commitments to the Summit Fund are solicited every fall but are accepted year-round.


Why we give


Dear CAC parents and friends,

We give to CAC because we believe that a Christ-centered education is what’s best for our children. We wanted our children to be educated in a school with a Christian worldview. Children can be educated in English, math and science at any school, but we send our children to CAC, not just for the excellent formal education, but primarily for the Christian environment, for chapel, and for the people.

We know the faculty and staff at CAC care about more than just what grade our kids made on their exam — they care about our kids as people, they care about their heart, and most importantly, they care about their soul. What we see in our daughters is the impact that a loving, Christ-centered education has on young people.

The influence of CAC educators makes our kids better people and makes their growth as faithful Christians flourish. As alumni, my wife and I can affirm that the influence CAC has on you is a lifelong one — it’s an influence that impacts your worldview, your values and your behavior. CAC sets you up to be successful in life as a Christian person. 

We are honored to serve as Chairs of the inaugural 2021-2022 Summit Fund to continue to support CAC in any way we can. We know the impact the school has on each and every child there matters for each student’s future. CAC’s annual Summit Fund is crucial for CAC to continue to provide the outstanding Christian educational environment it has provided for the last 50 years. Consider giving to the annual Summit Fund, and have a lifelong influence on CAC students for the next 50 years.
