Since its foundation in 1991, Summit College has been committed to providing an affordable, high-quality education to students. Our operations began with one campus located in Colton, California, which was quickly approved by the Bureau of Private Post Education. In 1994, we went on to receive national accreditation from the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (or ACCET).
Summit College grew quickly, and we soon realized that expansion was a necessity. Our first branch campus was opened in Anaheim, California in 2003. That branch campus was recently relocated to our Santa Ana, California location. In October 2015, our third campus opened, and we are now proud to offer our programs to students from our El Cajon location. These three campuses allow us to serve the entire Inland Empire region, including San Diego and Orange Counties.
At Summit College, we appreciate that different students will have different programming needs. That’s why we offer both short- and long-term programs in a variety of disciplines, including allied health, technical, and business programs.
We also offer some accelerated programs that can help you to improve your career prospects in a short amount of time. Get on the fast track to your new position by completing one of our diploma programs in as little as two months. Our hands-on training approach will put you in the best position to succeed in your new career.
We are dedicated to helping our students afford a college education through the use of numerous financial aid programs. Most of our students rely on financial aid to pay for some or their entire program, and our financial aid counselors can help you find any assistance for which you might qualify. From student loans to grants and scholarships, we will track down the financial aid options that are right for you.
Career Paths with High Demand
At Summit College, we don’t prepare our students to just get a job. We provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to begin a career with long-term earning potential and job stability. Our allied health, technical, and business programs are in-demand fields, improving your chances of finding full-time employment upon completion.
Local Employer Connections
Since 1991, we have developed solid relationships with local area businesses, and our Career Services staff works to connect our students with potential employers. Whether we are placing you in an externship to get hands-on experience or help you to find a job placement after graduation, you will be connected to some of the best employers in the industry. As a well-respected organization in the San Diego area, local businesses feel confident when they hire recent Summit College graduates.
Since opening our doors, Summit College has followed a tried and tested formula that leads to student success. We are committed to continuing our efforts to offer the best career training available in San Diego County, Orange County, and the Inland Empire. We look forward to helping you achieve your career goals.
