What curriculum does PCA use?
Pinnacle Classical Academy is committed to a specific method of teaching children and not a prescribed curriculum. Our teachers make use of varied and excellent resources, using them as opportunities to train students to think classically. The curriculum is not seen as a predetermined path teachers must follow; it is the means of cultivating habits of the mind. Chosen texts, guides, and literature are based on standards set by our curriculum committee and approved by the board. Some of the publishing companies from which we order texts are listed on the Resources page.

Is any type of financial assistance provided?
PCA utilizes a service called FACTS. FACTS provides an online application which is used to assess financial need. FACTS reviews family financial information and makes a recommendation to the PCA financial aid committee which ultimately determines whether an award will be offered and what amount. PCA is committed to helping families provide excellent, Christ-centered education for their children, but PCA must work within its available resources. PCA encourages individuals to donate to its tuition assistance fund so that it can continue to help families fund their children’s education. Visit our Financial Aid page for more information.
