About Summit K2

Since opening in the fall of 2014 with a founding class of 7th graders at the beautifully restored and historic Chung Mei Home for Boys, Summit K2 has served the diverse communities in the southern region of the West Contra Costa County School District. 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.

In 2018, Innovate Public Schools recognized Summit K2 for providing exceptional outcomes for Latino learners in English. In 2020, we are graduating our first class of seniors!

Summit K2 is authorized by the Contra Costa County Office of Education and is tuition-free and open to all students. As a public school, enrollment is open to all students in grades 7 through 12.

10th Grade Lottery

K2 High School will be holding a lottery for 10th Grade only for the 2020-21 school year on Friday, August 14, 2020. Lottery results will be made public during some point during the day on the same day.

We are not accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year for other grades at this time. To learn more about enrollment for 2021-2022, please e-mail k2@summitps.org.

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.
