Summit Christian College, based in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, United States, was established in 1951 as Platte Valley Bible College. It offers on-campus and distance education programs leading to one-year certificates and 2- and 4-year degrees in the areas of Bible and ministry, Christian education, missions, and management and ethics. The college is historically affiliated with non-denominational, Christian churches and churches of Christ of the Restoration Movement.

For many years, a program of medical missions was the college's major contribution to the efforts of Christian Church-related Bible colleges in the area of world evangelism. In recent years, the lack of demand for such programs, and the difficulties of providing them, have led to the discontinuance of the medical mission program at Summit.
In 2005, Platte Valley Bible College changed its name to become Summit Christian College. Total enrollment varies between about 40 and 60 students.
In 2008, Summit Christian College moved into a newly remodeled campus in the neighboring city of Gering, Nebraska.
