Our Mission

  • Summit Charter Academy allows students to explore the world around them as the staff challenges each student to rise to the pinnacle of physical, artistic, and intellectual awareness.
    Summit Charter Academy provides an educational environment where students demonstrate a firm commitment to their community, exhibit strong personal character, critically analyze information and communicate articulately.
    Summit Charter Academy is committed to developing critical thinkers and problem solvers who value the perspectives and cultures of the global community.

About Us

  • Summit Charter Collegiate Academy is a middle and high school campus serving a close-knit community of students from seventh through twelfth grade who are serious about their education and are preparing for success at university and life beyond.


    Summit Charter Collegiate Academy is an International Baccalaureate World School.  These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Summit Charter Collegiate Academy believes is important for our students.


    The Collegiate Academy, located in a quiet, secluded area on the west side of Porterville, is an extension of Summit Charter Academy, a dependent charter school under the Burton School District.  As a charter school, the Collegiate Academy enjoys the freedom of selecting and retaining only those students with a history of academic excellence and noteworthy citizenship.


    Summit Charter Collegiate Academy offers a cooperative, dynamic, and goal oriented learning experience designed to create graduates who are multi-lingual, community-minded, and internationally aware.
