Summit College follows a formula that has led to its students’ success since 1991, the year the school was founded. This formula blends high-standard theoretical instruction with up-to-date, hands-on training. We will continue in the effort to create the very best instruction available to students for the years to come, improving our facilities and updating our curriculum.

Our programs are offered on three different campuses in California: El Cajon, Santa Ana and Colton Campus. You will find exceptional classrooms and laboratories at all Summit College’s campuses. They are especially designed to help students work with real-world equipment in a hands-on environment. We understand that up-to-date technologies and equipment help students acquire the right training and knowledge to successfully launch their new careers. So we make an effort to keep our facilities modern and our curriculum translating the latest market trends.
