Our Locations: 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. 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.
