We just received the Fall 2017 NOVA , Pinnacle Early College Students’ academic standing list.
3 of our Early College Students made it to the President’s List at NOVA! Please note that these students are indeed still high school students and out of tens of thousands of NOVA students, these three students made us all proud and became some of the very few students who made it to the Top Academic List at NOVA. Congrats to Selim K. (12th grade), Erva M.(12th grade), Kemal F. (11th grade).
Last year,the Pinnacle Early College Program started with 6 students and we currently have 20 students in the program. Out of all 20, 3 of them made it to the President’s List, 12 of them made it to the Dean’s list and without an exception, the rest of them made it to the Good Standing list! This is a true American Saga and I sincerely congratulate all our students on their success!

I am sure all of you are well aware of the FLU issue that the entire nation is facing. We had various cases that members of our community has been experiencing and I would like to remind you all on one important issue. If your child has any flu symptoms i.e. fever, vomiting, please keep them at home until they are symptom free for 24 hours. Your sensitivity on this matter is greatly appreciated.
