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.
