  • The Pinnacle School is a private school for college-bound students in grades 2 through 12. It is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and is a state-approved special education day school.  Our students are both privately and district placed and come from Connecticut and New York. Our students have unique learning profiles and may be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Specific Learning Disabilities, Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorders (SCD), and/or mild Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 
  • At The Pinnacle School, we focus on creating a caring community that supports students` academic and social-emotional development. At the heart of our program is an emphasis on building resilience, self-esteem and an enthusiasm for learning. We accomplish this by identifying students` strengths, creating opportunities for success, and building on these successes daily. Through these experiences, students begin to gain confidence, value their academic success and flourish.
  • Our approach is highly individualized and customized to each student`s unique learning profile. We use a collaborative approach that includes the student as an insightful member of his or her team. By doing so, they learn the important role they have in their own development, become effective self-advocates and reach their true potential.
