Pinnacle’s academic program support students’ intellectual, social, and emotional needs through small class sizes and differentiated instruction. Research-based strategies and instruction drive our educational approach and enhance our ability to individualize each student's education plan, meet them where they are, and slowly raise the bar. We create small successes which we build on daily.


Over time, perceived obstacles dissipate and students gain confidence to develop academic competence and resiliency for their future journeys. We are accredited by NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) and common core aligned. We follow the Connecticut State Department of Education academic and credit requirements across all subject areas.


We offer a variety of electives with student interests in mind. This enables students to leverage their strengths, become more engaged, and incorporate skills they need to become successful members of their community. Some examples are:

  • Culinary Arts

  • Visual and Creative Arts

  • Architecture

  • Music

  • Drama and Improvisation

  • Technology, Coding, and 3D Printing

  • Physical Education

  • Japanese Anime
