About Summit Sierra

Summit Sierra is a small, personalized college-prep public high school in the Seattle’s Chinatown International District. We provide a rigorous and supportive learning environment for a diverse group of passionate young people. We are tuition free and open to all students.

After spending time getting to know the fabric of our community, the Summit Sierra team opened our doors in the fall of 2015. Our first class of seniors graduated in 2019 and we are proud to share that 100% were accepted to a four-year college.

In 2020, Summit Sierra continued to thrive and was recognized by the Washington School Recognition Program for growth and excellence in student achievement.

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

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.
