Why Teach at Pinnacle Classical Academy:
There are over one hundred charter schools and over one hundred school districts in the state. You could teach for any one of them, so what makes Pinnacle Classical Academy such an attractive option for an educational professional?
Freedom to Teach
At Pinnacle Classical Academy, our teachers are given the opportunity to actually teach the curriculum. The school day is designed so that teachers are given maximum classroom time for instruction without the all-too-common interruptions for assessments or having students pulled out numerous times during the day.
An Advanced Curriculum
At Pinnacle Classical Academy, we utilize the Hirsch Foundation’s Core Knowledge content-based curriculum in ELA, Reading, Social Studies and Science; for mathematics we utilize Singapore Math. In addition, at Pinnacle we emphasize STEM through a dedicated STEM Lab, along with cultural arts and 21st century skills.
At Pinnacle Classical Academy we have incredible parental support. Our parents are genuinely involved in the education of their children and have a vested interest in the success of the school. Parent volunteers, our parent organization PEAK (Parents Encouraging Academic Knowledge), and the dedication of the parents of all students truly helps Pinnacle stand apart.
A Collegial Atmosphere
The teachers at Pinnacle Classical Academy have developed a saying, “We are family.” This motto is demonstrated on a daily basis throughout the school. Teachers work together to ensure student success and achievement, and teachers work together to build each other up. Many schools talk about developing Professional Learning Communities, but at Pinnacle our teachers live up to that vision.
Opportunities to Grow as a Professional
One thing that most teachers crave is the opportunity to grow. At Pinnacle Classical Academy we believe that not only should each student reach their potential, but teachers should as well. Through professional development, mentoring, and opportunities to expand knowledge and skills, teachers at Pinnacle have the ability to grow in the profession and take an active role in teacher-leadership.
A Growing and Flourishing School
Pinnacle Classical Academy is the only charter school in Cleveland County. Since opening in the fall of 2013, the surrounding community has embraced the school and its mission. The school has experienced continuous growth, and is on-schedule to add one grade each year until the school is K-12.
