About Summit Denali

Since opening in the fall of 2013 with a founding class of 6th graders, Summit Denali has served the diverse communities of Santa Clara County — from Palo Alto to San Jose — with a particular focus on families living near the Highway 101 corridor. 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 volleyball practice — for every student, every day.

In 2020, we are graduating our first class of seniors and are proud to share that college acceptances include schools like Stanford, MIT, all University of California schools, San Jose State, CalPoly, and Princeton.

Summit Denali is a countywide benefit charter school authorized by the Santa Clara County Board of Education. We are tuition free, open to all students, and currently enrolling incoming students in grades 6 through 12.

Now Enrolling for 2021-22!

We are currently accepting applications for the 2021-22 school year! We will be holding an admissions lottery for 6th grade on March 5, 2021. All Intent to Enroll forms received by the application deadline of 3 PM on February 26, 2021 will be included in the lottery. Admissions offers will be made on a space available basis as a result of the lottery. Any applicant who does not receive an offer of admission will be placed on the waitlist.

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.
