About Summit Atlas

Having opened in the fall of 2017 with a founding class of 6th and 9th graders, Summit Atlas has served the diverse communities of West Seattle and White Center. We believe that every student is capable of college success, that it takes character and academics to achieve that success, and that serving others is part of the joy and responsibility of success. These three elements are evident in everything we do, from project time to basketball practice — for every student, every day.

Our students are thriving in our personalized learning environment. In 2020, Summit Atlas was recognized by the Washington School Recognition Program for growth and excellence in student achievement.

Summit Atlas is authorized by the Washington State Charter School Commission as a tuition-free school that is open to all students. Summit Atlas is serving grades 6 through 12. Our first class will graduate in spring 2021!

We’re Enrolling for 2020-2021

The Summit Difference

Our promise is that Summit students will be prepared for success in a 4 year college. But beyond this, Summit students grow as happy, kind, independent and curious young adults prepared with the habits and skills they need for success in life.

Summit students spend their days solving real-world problems and building the skills of self-direction, collaboration and reflection – critical for college and life success. Our curriculum is based in proven learning science and supports development of the whole child.

We founded our inaugural school, Summit Preparatory High School, in 2003. Today, we are proud to operate some of the best public schools in the country serving diverse communities throughout California and Washington states.
