What began at the Colton campus has grown and evolved to become one of the top vocational schools in the region. We established an Anaheim branch in 2003, which we recently relocated to our Santa Ana location. In October 2015, our third campus opened, and we are now proud to offer our programs to students from our El Cajon location. In 2020, we have opened our new location in San Bernardino.These campuses allow us to serve the entire Inland Empire region, including San Diego and Orange Counties.


At Summit College, we appreciate that every student’s climb is different. 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.

Since our founding in 1991, Summit College has provided affordable, quality education to students seeking new paths. We began with one campus in Colton, California, which was quickly approved by the Bureau of Private Post Education. Then, just three years later, in 1994, we received national accreditation from the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (or ACCET). Our three accredited locations give you more options as you seek to elevate your career.


At Summit College we believe that every person should be able to pursue their career goals to the highest heights. That is why we offer several kinds of financial aid. Most of our students rely on financial aid to pay for some or all of their 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.


At Summit College, we do more than prepare you to just land the 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 high-demand fields, improving your chances of finding full-time employment upon completion.


Since 1991, we have developed solid relationships with local area businesses, and our Career Services staff connects our graduates with potential employers. Whether you are doing an externship to get hands-on experience or finding a job after graduation, Summit will connect you to some of the best employers in the industry. Because Summit is a well-respected organization in the San Diego area, local businesses feel confident when they hire our graduates.

Since opening our doors, we have helped students elevate their lives and pursue new career paths. We will continue to offer the best career training available in San Diego County, Orange County, and the Inland Empire. We look forward to helping you reach new professional heights.
