    Pinnacle Classical Academy students significantly outperform North Carolina average on EOG, EOC tests

    Students at Pinnacle Classical Academy had significantly higher passing rates on North Carolina's 2020-21 end-of-grade and end-of-course tests than the statewide average, according to data released in September by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.

    In a year in which only 45.4% of students across North Carolina scored at or above Achievement Level 3 (grade-level proficient), 70.6% of students at Pinnacle Classical Academy did so.

    "We're so grateful for the support of our parents and the commitment of our teachers, who maintained the rigor of our academic program and worked so hard to allow us to reopen for five-day-per-week in-person instruction last November," said Dr. Shelly Bullard, the school's headmaster.  "We're committed to doing what is right for kids, and will continue to weather the COVID storm."

    "We're especially proud that our economically disadvantaged students and students of color did so much better than the state average," Bullard added. "58.3% of our economically disadvantaged students passed their EOG and EOC tests -- compared to only 28.8% across the state. We are clearly making a significant academic difference in the lives of our 1,100 students."
