Comprehensive Education and Behavioral Health Programs

The Pinnacle Schools provide Cognia (formerly AdvancED) accredited education programs with behavioral health services as needed. As a program of Pinnacle Behavioral Health, Inc., The Pinnacle Schools is accredited by the nationally recognized Joint Commission in Behavioral Health Care.

In most cases, students work at their own pace with close supervision and assistance as needed from Highly Qualified and State Certified teachers. Upon enrollment, each student is evaluated and assessed to determine strengths, remediation and/or behavioral health care needs.

With the results, an individualized education program is developed for each student in our program. We work closely with students, parents, therapists and other school counselors to design a program that supports the specific needs of each student whether they are gifted or struggling in school or home. If needed, therapeutic support is provided by mental health professionals that have been carefully recruited and screened to work with our students.
