Pinnacle Academy

Tel: (941)755-1400
Grades: UG | 110 students
Pinnacle Academy is a private, non-denominational school, specializing in the education of children with autism and related behavioral disorders.
Our goal is to provide children and families with a unique, supportive setting-a place to call “home”.
Our philosophy is based on the agreement between researchers, educators, and parents, which strongly suggests that early is essential and more is better.
We believe that children should not be expected to mold into a classroom environment or teaching style, but rather that the setting and methodology should be developed to suit each individual child.
We believe that the most effective education for our children is one that incorporates a combination of proven methods and teaching principles, deriving curriculum from the reinforcing conditions in the natural environment.
We feel that each child’s progress should be monitored not only through observation, but also through frequent data collection and probes.
