About Summit Olympus

Summit Olympus is a unique public high school, best known for providing a college-prep curriculum and supportive learning environment for a diverse group of young people. The school attracts students from across Tacoma, but is particularly focused on serving families living in the South End, Eastside, and Hilltop neighborhoods.

After much public demand for more school options, the school opened in 2015 in a historic building – the former Nalley’s pickle-packing plant near the Tacoma Dome. Lovingly renovated, the school features expansive windows overlooking downtown Tacoma, the Tideflats, and is walking distance to the Marina and museum district.

All Summit students benefit from a supportive learning environment, technology resources, outstanding faculty, small classes, and individualized attention from their teachers and mentor. Summit Olympus Public Charter School is authorized by the Washington Charter School Commission.

In 2019, Summit Olympus graduated our first class. We celebrated 100% being accepted to a college or university.

As a public school, enrollment at Summit Olympus is tuition-free and open to all students in grades 9 through 12.

Seats are still available for 2021-22!

We are continuing to accept applications and extend offers.

The Summit Difference

College Acceptance

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.
