The North Carolina Board of Education recently released the report cards for the 2014-2015 school year. Pinnacle Classical Academy received an overall grade of ‘B’, and met ‘expected growth’. No school in Cleveland County achieved a higher grade than Pinnacle Classical Academy. According to Headmaster, Robert Brown, “In just our second year of operation, this improvement in test scores and overall grade is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students, parents, and teachers.” Pinnacle Classical Academy does not use the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) or the North Carolina Essential Standards (NCES) as its curriculum framework. Pinnacle uses the acclaimed Core Knowledge Sequence and Singapore Math, combined with a dedicated STEM course and classic interdisciplinary classes.
Pinnacle Classical Academy, a public school chartered by the State of North Carolina and currently serves 466 students, is in its third year of operation. The demographics of Pinnacle Classical Academy match those of the surrounding community that it serves. Pinnacle Classical Academy is a college-preparatory school whose focus is preparing all students for life after high school. There is no fee to apply or to attend Pinnacle Classical Academy.
Enrollment for Pinnacle Classical Academy’s 2016-2017 school year is currently open. Applications for grades K-9 are available online at PinnacleClassicalAcademy.com. All students who will be in kindergarten through ninth-grade for the 2016-2017 school year are encouraged to apply.
Pinnacle Classical Academy is located at 900 South Post Road in Shelby. This will be the school’s home during the construction of our permanent campus. The plan for a permanent home is to construct a new K-12 campus on Joe’s Lake Road, about one mile from the South Post Road location.
