Photos & memories from our annual Tahoma Camping Trip. See more photos here.

Dear Families,

We had a fantastic time camping!  Students engaged in a range of activities, grew closer within their mentor groups, and enjoyed the natural setting among the beautiful redwoods.  We're grateful to the volunteers who made it possible.

A Summit education is a special opportunity.  Our students represent a diverse cross section of San Jose and engage in a variety of unique learning experiences, like our camping trip.  Our education is personalized.  100% of our graduates have been accepted to college.

Your financial contributions help make these opportunities possible.  This year, our goal is to raise $40,000 to cover those student programs that, while not part of our operating budget, are core to the Tahoma experience. A $400 contribution per family is suggested, but any amount is appreciated.  Your donations help support:

     -School Events (including trips, prom, and graduation)
     -College application fees (ensuring all our seniors can apply for college)
     -AP testing (providing college credit for our students
     -Sports (helping Tahoma’s teams to represent our school with pride)

There are four ways you can contribute:
     -Bring your check or money to our office
     -Through our online lunch payment system
     -Through PayPal at
     -Pledge monthly contributions:

Your contributions help to provide a premiere high school experience for all of our students.
