The SAC is a high school athletic conference consisting of the eight high schools located area of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Three of the schools are private, one being a Lutheran academy, and the other two being Catholic preparatories. The rest are public schools, being part of Fort Wayne Community Schools District.

All member schools are located in Allen County, Indiana. Originally called the Fort Wayne City Series, the name was changed to the Summit Athletic Conference in 1973, when Harding High School joined.[1]

Elmhurst High School closed at the end of the 2009-10 academic year, with students being spread out between North Side, South Side, and Wayne high schools.[2]Harding closed at the end of the 2010-11 school year.

In December 2013, Fort Wayne Homestead and Fort Wayne Carroll both accepted limited membership into the SAC for Football, Boy's Basketball and Girls Basketball beginning with the 2015-2016 school year. The two schools were in the market for a new conference after six members of the Northeast Hoosier Conference decided to leave in 2015 to form a new league with Leo and Huntington North.[3]
