The Pinnacle Academy offers a variety of academic and enrichment classes, the Intensive program, and on-site specialty clinics during the summer weeks for students in pre-k through grade 12. The summer programs feature Pinnacle’s unique multi-sensory and evidence-based approaches to instruction. The program is offered for Pinnacle and non-Pinnacle students who may or may not have an identified language-based or learning difference. Our goal during the summer months is three-fold:
• Nature and severity of learning gap
Grade reports and test results indicate that the student is significantly behind in one or more subject areas and requires continued remedial instruction.
Previous breaks from services have indicated a regression and recoupment time that is considered excessive and potentially harmful to the student’s educational progress in academics or social-emotional development.
• Emerging skills
The student has demonstrated a gain in learning acquisition that is correlated to a critical point in instruction. A lapse in services may jeopardize the chances of furthering the skill(s).
