What We Do

At Pinnacle Academy, we're not just an online learning platform—we're a private institution dedicated to transforming students into scholars.  We provide Individualized learning plans that consider learning style as a component to success so each scholar can thrive.  Our focus  begins at sixth through twelfth grade students, with exception to parent lead elementary Learning Pods. Join us on the journey to academic excellence and unlock your full potential with Pinnacle Academy. Our accredited curriculum and approach to learning is designed to empower students to reach their academic peak.

 

Why We Do

Amidst the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic, a passionate team of educators banded together to help tackle what we fear statistics will show as an exacerbation in the educational gap among black and brown communities. From this unity sprang an innovative learning platform designed to ignite scholar learning. Our Mission is to empower students who have struggled in traditional schools, by arming them with the tools and confidence needed to soar academically. Join us in revolutionizing education and unlocking the full potential of every student.

How We Do

At Pinnacle Academy, we pride ourselves on a practical approach to learning. Our core principle revolves around fostering independent learning experiences that prioritize success and completion. At Pinnacle, our scholars are encouraged to challenge themselves academically, while exploring healthy competition through sports, games, and extracurricular activities. Unlike traditional schools our scholars are not judged on practices that do not account for flexible scheduling and individuality in learning style .

 

Our Approach to learning acknowledges each student's uniqueness and the belief that  student success begins with good communication and parent involvement. Our approach includes the following:

  • Scholars are assigned an academic advisor who works in concert with both student and parent to maintain a positive learning. Advisors also assign teachers and or tutoring whenever necessary. 

  • Scholars take grade-level placement and learning style assessments prior to being assigned course materials. 

  • We teach scholars techniques to support their learning style (Examples: Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic)

  • Parents can access the scholar dashboard and calendar of events.

  • Scholars have individualized learning schedules.

  • Teachers provide course instructions for up to 4 scholars at one time for a maximum of 50 minutes per one setting.

  • Tutoring can also be scheduled regularly or on an as-needed basis by the scholars.

Our goal is to teach scholars to become independent learners, acquiring problem-solving and communication skills that leads to confident, self-advocating scholars. Pinnacle also recognizes

the opportunity to keep our scholars relevant within the tech-savvy society by providing technology courses and seminars. We also host a variety of seminars on voter education, personal finance, wealth management, public health, and holistic wellness seminars.

Our scholars are required to score a minimum of 80% to progress academically within each course.
