Summit Tahoma is public and tuition-free. We are open to all; there are no admissions requirements. If there are more students expressing interest in enrolling than the number of available spots, we will use a random selection process to determine who will receive a space. You can read more in our equal access statement.

Contact us to learn more about enrolling in our school. We will be hosting virtual open houses and other online events this spring where you can hear from our school leaders, teachers and students. Call (408) 729-1981 or email Tahoma@summitps.org for more information.

At Summit Tahoma, students are empowered, self-directed learners working towards their college & career goals.

SMALLER CLASSES. BIGGER RESULTS.At Summit Tahoma, we take personalized learning one step further – every student is assigned a faculty mentor who is the student’s coach, college counselor, and advocate. Students learn and grow in a small, safe, and inclusive community.

COLLEGE-PREP CURRICULUM. Students engage in real-world learning projects. These projects teach students to become critical thinkers and develop the habits to be successful.

WORLD-CLASS FACULTY. Our committed educators come from the nation’s top teacher-preparation programs and care deeply about our students. Our teachers focus on building relationships with students and families and coaching students to become truly empowered learners.

AN ENRICHED EXPERIENCE. Beyond the classroom, Summit Tahoma students can receive academic support, play sports, or lead a club. We are open after hours so students can continue to work on their goals, meet with teachers, or participate in one of our athletic teams or student clubs from soccer to yearbook and music and basketball.

ALL SUMMIT STUDENTS ARE COLLEGE-READY. Every student at Summit Tahoma takes at least six Advanced Placement (AP) courses and one AP exam before graduation. All graduates meet or exceed four-year college entrance requirements. 99% of Summit graduates are accepted at four-year colleges. Summit graduates are completing college within six years at double the national average.
