Beginning a new career is a worthy goal, and Summit will support each step you take toward that goal. At Summit, our dedicated instructors will encourage and challenge you, and our coursework and externships will help you pursue the proficiency that can elevate your career. We know there are no shortcuts to a fulfilling career, but we believe your career climb begins here.


Summit College has many program options in three different career fields: Allied Health, Trade and Technical, and Business. Each program will prepare you to reach your career goals, providing you with comprehensive instruction and the hands-on skills you need to find an entry-level job.

Allied Health

Trade and Technical



At Summit College we believe that students must learn beyond the theory taught inside a classroom. That’s why your classes will require you to spend time in the lab and deal with real-life situations.

In the Certified Nursing Assisting (CNA) program, for example, you will be required to complete lab/clinical training. This prepares you to care for patients when you start your job.
For students of Trade and Technical programs, we have facilities where students can practice what they learn in the classroom and deal with challenges they will encounter in real life.


The Library, and Computer Lab is available at the college and are central to the support of student learning. Open 5 days a week during campus hours to all students and graduates, this area is comfortable and quiet, offering a place to study with computer access. The area is equipped with learning materials and computers for research, along with test bank practice questions to assist nursing students with their NCLEX testing needs. Maps of the campus are available from the receptionist of your campus.

Summit College classrooms are prepared with some of the tools and equipment that are used in each field of study.


To elevate your career preparation, Summit College provides short-term programs and multiple scheduling options. We keep our program schedule in tune with our mission to provide adult learners with entry-level skills and technological knowledge necessary to achieve success in their vocational fields.

For those who want to start a career, but have no time to waste, we offer programs that can be completed in less than a year. And because we understand that modern life requires students to coordinate education with other activities, we offer courses during mornings, nights, and weekends.


As a Summit College student, you will benefit from our Career Services. When it’s time for you to look for a job in your chosen field, Summit will assist you with resume preparation, interviewing techniques, and establishing sites for externships.
