Summit Shasta 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.

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

SMALLER CLASSES. BIGGER RESULTS.At Summit Shasta, 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 Shasta 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 Shasta 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.



A friend of the family told us about a new Summit Shasta that opened in Daly City. It was the best thing that happened to our daughter. We love this school!! Shasta is a diverse, technologically advanced college prep school. The teachers are all fantastic, young people who can really bond with our kids. They are so full of energy and passion for teaching that it’s amazing. The teachers can connect with our kids in ways that parents can’t. They pass their love of education on to our kids and I personally can’t thank them enough. Nothing like my old high school. My daughter loves all of her teachers, even the ones she hasn’t even had in a class yet.


We love that Summit Shasta is a college prep school. All of the teachers and staff are there to help and encourage all of our kids to get into great colleges throughout the country!! 100% of the Class of 2017 was accepted to colleges. How can you beat that?


Another perk at Summit Shasta is the mentors. Each student meets with their mentor on a one-on-one basis every week to make sure they are on track to understand the assignments and to get the best grades possible. The mentor groups are small groups of about 20 kids that are together for their entire high school experience. So instead of 1 guidance counselor for the entire grade it’s broken up for more one-on-one time which means “no kid left behind”.


Summit Shasta only has about 100 kids per grade making each of the classes relatively small. Small classes = a better learning experience in the classroom. That’s the kind of equation parents like to see!!
