Equipping every student to lead a fulfilled life.
Since opening in the fall of 2013 with a founding class of 6th graders, Summit Denali has served the diverse communities of Santa Clara County — from Palo Alto to San Jose — with a particular focus on families living near the Highway 101 corridor. We believe that every student is capable of college success, that it takes character and academics to achieve that success, and that serving others is part of the joy and responsibility of success. These three elements are evident in everything we do, from project time to volleyball practice — for every student, every day.
In 2020, we graduated our first class of seniors and are proud to share that college acceptances include schools like Stanford, MIT, all University of California schools, San Jose State, CalPoly, Princeton, and many more other college acceptances.
Our middle school program is structured to respond to the unique and changing needs of adolescents, and readies our students for high school. Our program develops and builds skill sets, inspires engagement and creates lifelong learning habits. Students learn how to set goals, make plans, demonstrate their skills and knowledge, and reflect on their progress.
Our high school program is college prep. Students continue with skill development. Students apply their acquired knowledge, skills, and habits to exercises that broaden and deepen their passions and prepare them for what they’ll encounter after graduation and in the world. Students participate in hands-on projects in class and eight weeks of expeditionary learning each year. Experiential learning exposes students to new career, volunteer pathways, and internships, while nurturing their sense of purpose. AP courses are required for all junior and senior students.
Summit Denali is a countywide benefit charter school authorized by the Santa Clara County Board of Education. We are tuition free, open to all students, and currently enrolling incoming students in grades 6 through 12.
