Pinnacle Academy has served preschool to 8th grade students for its first eight years of operation. As of last year,we expanded into the Early College High School Model and became a preschool-12th grade level program. We started with only 6 students, then grew into a 20 student program in our second year. Our first senior class – Erva, Selim, Fethiye, and Arif – graduated this year! Kudos to the Class of 2018!
Our keynote speaker was Dr. Pam Hilbert, the Provost at the NOVA Annandale Campus, who provided mindful suggestions to our students that benefit them for the rest of their lives. Mr. Mangan addressed our students as our parent representative. Mrs. Ozturk addressed the Class of 2018 and described how their unconventional path made them leaders of tomorrow.
Valedictorian Selim and salutatorian Erva delivered such touching speeches and made us all proud! All 4 got acceptances from very good 4 year colleges – however, they will finish sooner since they already earned so many transferring credits from NOVA! Congrats to the Class of 2018! We love you all!
