"We are all about fit. We are not as concerned about filling seats as we are about maintaining a safe community and having the appropriate support for each student."
- Dede LeComte, Director of Admissions
At Pinnacle, we work closely with families throughout the admissions process. Our process, outlined below, is designed to holistically identify students who will thrive in our unique school environment:
- Informational Phone Interview with the Director of Admissions (Usually 30-45 Minutes)
- Parent Meeting and Tour
- Completion of Application
- Student Meeting and Tour
- Student Shadow Day with Student Ambassador (One or More Days)
- Application and Portfolio Review
To complete the application, we require the following:
- Observation and/or Interview
- Completed Application Form
- Release to Speak with Outside Providers
- Three Years of Academic Records, Including an Official Transcript
- Neuropsychological or Psychoeducational Evaluation (Within Last 3 Years)
- Academic Evaluations and Standardized Testing Reports (Within The Past Year)
- Other Evaluations – e.g. Speech and Language
- Writing Samples
- Academic Recommendation from a Teacher or Administrator
- Recent Photograph
- Parent Statement
- Student Statement (High School)
Once Pinnacle has gathered all the above information and conducted the necessary consultations, the admissions committee will convene and determine if Pinnacle is able to meet the student’s needs.
Admissions are on a rolling basis until the school is at capacity, at which time accepted students will be placed on a waiting list. Students or families interested in applying to Pinnacle should contact us at email@example.com or (203) 661-1609 x 204.
