Summit Sierra 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 (206) 453-2520 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
At Summit Sierra, students are empowered, self-directed learners working towards their college & career goals.
SMALLER CLASSES. BIGGER RESULTS. At Summit Sierra, 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 Sierra 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.

WHAT DO PARENTS SAY…
When I heard about Summit and did a bit of online research I felt cautiously hopeful. I then got the unique opportunity to participate in several open houses and a dinner where I met multiple, passionate Principal, teachers and a remarkable, soon-to-be Summit graduate. My son Drew is now heading into his Junior year at Summit Sierra… and thriving. In particular, I feel that the collaborative, project-based learning approach, college prep focus, small class size, mentorships and expeditions resonate beautifully with my son’s character while reading him for college. I am extremely grateful for such an exceptional high school option families.
