The Summit Model

Teaching at Summit is unlike teaching at a traditional school - our teachers are empowered to meet the needs of every student through a variety of pedagogical methods. Summit teachers use data to support the self-development and academic and social-emotional growth for the students they mentor and teach. At Summit, our teachers also mentor the same group of students each year, which allows them to build strong relationships based on deep trust. 

As mentors, Summit teachers nurture and develop strong relationships with students as they coach them towards their personal goals. Mentors meet 1:1 with each student at least once a week and meet regularly as a mentor group. 

In class, teachers teach cognitive skills through real-world projects - using their subject-area expertise to help students apply their knowledge to the world around them. Summit faculty teach via small group workshops, 1:1 targeted interventions, and by supporting students as they work at their own pace using resources on the Summit Learning Platform.  

We are committed to continual growth at Summit. We prioritize developing leaders from within and have invested in multiple career pathway programs for our teachers and school leaders. With dedicated days of professional development built into the academic year and weekly coaching sessions with a school leader, we equip our teachers with the tools necessary to improve their practice and tackle challenging issues. 

By design, our schools are small communities where every student is known. Our schools are intentionally heterogeneous and reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate. As a teacher, this will require being culturally responsive and creating equitable learning pathways for all students. 

What you’ll do:


  • A student school day is around 8-8:30am to 3-3:30pm, depending on the specific school. See sample teacher schedules here.


  • Project Time: Teach two to three 90-minute blocks per day of project time. Most teach one course for the entire grade (e.g. 9th Grade Biology), and see each section twice per week. Teachers work with students on projects that develop cognitive skills and apply their content knowledge to real-world situations. Teachers facilitate discussions in the classroom, coach students in applying their cognitive skills, and give students feedback.


  • Interventions and Personalized Learning Time: Facilitate daily literacy or math interventions and personalized learning time, which don’t involve lesson planning. During this time, teachers provide student support, monitor progress, and check in with individuals or groups of students.


  • Prep Time: Between teaching blocks, teachers analyze student data, build lesson plans, support school culture, and other personal development activities. Summit teachers build lesson plans through a deep understanding of student progress data, which determines the group and individual supports needed for their students to succeed.


  • Mentor Time: Build deep relationships and sense of community when teachers meet with their small group of mentees daily for their entire time at Summit. One day a week, teachers meet for most of the day with their mentor groups, work on habits of success as a group, and check in one-on-one with their mentees. Mentors coach and advocate for their mentees both inside and outside of the classroom, and strive to support them as they develop their sense of purpose as they become self-directed learners.


  • Professional Development: Twice a week, teachers participate in all-faculty after-school meetings where community decisions are made, professional development takes place, and faculty collaborates as a grade-level team. Additionally, teachers meet at least twice per month with their faculty mentor to develop as a teacher-leader.

What You Need


  • Commitment to uphold Summit’s values, belief that all children deserve a rigorous and equitable education that prepares them for college and for life


  • Teaching Credential in California, or another US state 


  • Bachelor’s degree (a Master’s Degree in Education is preferred, but not required)

  • Clear health and background check


  • Teaching experience in your subject preferred, but not required

The Summit Model

Summit’s research-backed model makes teaching and learning at a Summit school unlike any other.  At Summit, our teachers mentor the same group of students each year in advisory groups, which allows them to build strong relationships based on deep trust over multiple years. Mentors meet 1:1 with each student regularly to coach students toward their personal goals, and meet daily as a mentor group. During Project Time,  teachers teach universal skills through real-world projects - using their subject-area expertise to help students apply their knowledge to the world around them. Through our research-backed curriculum, Summit gives teachers the tools they need so that they can focus on teaching and becoming the best project-based teachers in the world.  We are deeply committed to continuous improvement at Summit, both as an organization and for our individual faculty. With dedicated days of professional development built into the academic year, regular coaching sessions with a school leader, and a culture of honest, actionable, and timely feedback, we equip our teachers with the tools necessary to improve their practice and tackle challenging issues. We also prioritize developing leaders from within and have invested in multiple career pathway programs for our teachers and school leaders.  Summit has intensive collaboration structures built in to our weekly schedules. Teachers collaborate at the grade and subject levels, forming regular communities of practice to support each other in continuously improving as project-based teachers and mentors. By design, our schools are small communities where every student is known. They are intentionally heterogeneous and reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate. As a teacher, this will require being culturally responsive and creating equitable learning pathways for all students.

  • A student school day is around 8-8:30am to 3-3:30pm, depending on the specific school. Teachers stay until 5pm three days per week. 


  • Project Time: Teach 90-minute blocks in high school or four 55-minute blocks in middle school, per day of project time. Most teachers teach one course for the entire grade (e.g. 9th Grade Biology), and see each section twice per week. Teachers work with students on projects that develop cognitive skills and apply their content knowledge to real-world situations. Teachers facilitate discussions in the classroom, coach students in applying their cognitive skills, and give students feedback. Between teaching blocks, teachers analyze student data, build lesson plans, support school culture, and other personal development activities. Summit teachers build lesson plans through a deep understanding of student progress data, which determines the group and individual supports needed for their students to succeed. 


  • Mentor Time: Build deep relationships and sense of community when teachers meet with their small group of mentees daily for their entire time at Summit. Daily, teachers meet with their mentor groups, work on habits of success as a group, and check in one-on-one with their mentees. Mentors coach and advocate for their mentees both inside and outside of the classroom, and strive to support them as they develop their sense of purpose as they become self-directed learners.


  • Self-Directed Learning Time and Interventions: Facilitate Self Directed Learning time and daily literacy or math interventions, which don’t involve lesson planning. During this time, teachers provide student support, monitor progress, and check in with individuals or groups of students.


  • Collaboration & Professional Development: Twice a week, teachers participate in all-faculty after-school meetings where community decisions are made, professional development takes place, and faculty collaborates as a grade-level team or subject-level team. 

What You Need


  • Commitment to uphold Summit’s values, and the belief that all children deserve a rigorous and equitable education that prepares them for college and for life


  • Teaching Credential in California or another US state


  • Bachelor’s Degree (a Master’s Degree in Education is preferred, but not required)

  • Clear health and background check


  • Teaching experience in your subject preferred, but not required

Who You Are


  • You want to be a world-class project-based learning teacher 

  • You thrive while collaborating and are excited to work with mission-aligned, high-performing colleagues. You find positivity in shared successes.

  • You’re excited to teach Summit’s common curriculum and assessment system, which was designed for teachers and by teachers in partnership with learning scientists. 

  • You care deeply about working in intentionally heterogeneous schools and are ready to support all diverse students to reach a fulfilled life

  • You’re eager to engage in professional development and be developed as a practitioner in a network that is committed to continuous improvement.

  • You have a growth mindset and see feedback as a positive

  • You are passionate about serving as a mentor and advocate for a group of students that you’ll follow year to year. You’re open to having hard conversations to support students. 

What You Get

Summit offers competitive salaries and benefit options, including covering 75% of the health, dental, and vision plan costs. We fully cover life and disability insurance. We have a “take what you need” PTO policy, 11 paid holidays, 4 weeks of vacation during the year, and a summer break.
