About

Welcome to Summit K2! We are a free, public charter school serving middle and high school students.

Opened in the fall of 2014 with a founding class of 7th graders at the beautifully restored and historic Chung Mei Home for Boys, Summit K2 serves the diverse communities in the southern region of the West Contra Costa County School District in El Cerrito and surrounding area. 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 basketball practice, for every student, every day.

In 2018, Innovate Public Schools recognized Summit K2 for providing exceptional outcomes for Latino learners in English. Summit K2 is authorized by the Contra Costa County Office of Education and is tuition-free and open to all students. As a public school, enrollment is open to all students in grades 7 through 12.
