Super teaching staff truly dedicated to helping students learn. Small class sizes are wonderful. Teachers know my child's name even if they''ve never taught him

Pinnacle Academy is an exceptional school with initial focus on nurturing the whole child. Last year I had two of my kids and this year I registered all my four kids. It is more academically challenging in all grades. The school handles all types of learners reaching out to the level of the child. The art, music, especially science and all other programs are outstanding! Most important of all, we as whole family feel the worm and friendly environment of Pinnacle Academy's teachers. We found all teachers and personnels of PA are outstanding... As a private school, the tuition is very affordable.. It's well worth the money. Highly recommended to at least check it out....

We have a son enrolled in Kindergarten for the first time this year. For us it has been worth the investment because it is a comfortable environment for him. He spent the first few years at home and so the smaller class size we feel has been a good transition for him. It has also been a good transition for us. It's comforting for us to know the names of all the students in his class and to know his teachers so well. We''ll keep him in as long as we can afford it mainly because he loves it so much and that's worth the money.

I have 2 children at Pinnacle Academy and I''m so happy and thankful that they''re getting the best education for the private tuition. The administration and teachers are amazing, dedicated, and go above and beyond to make sure each and every child is developing their best. My son is in 2nd grade and daughter in 4th grade and both have been here for 2 years. They''re thriving and learning so much everyday and love their teachers and small group of classmates. I very much appreciate the small classes and each of my children get a lot of attention...which I think is critical during these early learning years. Another advantage of being a small school, everyone knows each other and frequently, the upperclassmen give the youngers waves, high fives, hugs,...it's comforting to see how close this student body is. The school offers many opportunities in First Lego League, Fairfax County Science Fair, National Spelling Bee/Geography Bees, Future City, Odyssey of The Mind, Science Olympiad, and other STEM related competitions. This school has consistently ranked in the top for all of these competitions every year. It's no wonder with such dedicated faculty and parents.

Having a son whose previous private school had recommended for ADHD testing and subsequently a push towards medication, we were very pleased with Pinnacle, their approach, the classroom size and the teacher's attention to a child with ADHD and not on medication. Two years later, he is healthy, learning, happy and excelling at school.

It's a small but great school! Teachers are caring and successful. They are getting one-on-one attention with students. Students have successful education, good character as well as self-confident personality at the Pinnacle Academy.

Pinnacle Academy has caring administrators, teachers, parents, and students that create an amazing school community. I love teaching in a small class environment, because I can get to know each of my students as individual learners to help them grow and reach their full academic potential. I see so much joy and enthusiasm for learning across the school every day. I also appreciate all the exciting events that happen over the school year, including Family Fun Nights, STEM Night, History Bee, Science Fair, Future City competition, National Geographic Bee, First Lego League, Pi Day, fun field trips, and the big variety show. I am happy to be a part of the Pinnacle Academy family.

I have 2 kids at Pinnacle. Pinnacle Academy provides a great education for the price. The class sizes are small and the children get individualized attention. There is emphasis on not just education but also social interactions. The school also has a wide variety of clubs and events kids can participate in.

I love to be part of the Pinnacle Academy. It has small size classes and feels like a family. It is great to see students being challenged. Offering Algebra-1, high school credit course, to 6th grade along with the other levels is keeping the doors wide open to the future.
