School Profile History

Pinnacle Charter School was founded in 1995, and established one of the first charter schools in Arizona. Pinnacle has grown to include several brick-and-mortar charter high schools, including the addition of the Virtual Middle and High School. In 2003, Pinnacle Charter School was designated a “distance education provider” by the state of Arizona, and launched Pinnacle Online High School. That same year, we were fully accredited by the Commission on International and Transregional Accreditation (CITA).

Over the years, we have accomplished exceptional growth in the number of schools and students enrolled in Pinnacle Charter Schools. Our focus is on the full spectrum of student needs, including Honors course delivery, credit recovery, drop-out prevention and more. Through the use of online learning and a blend of software and innovative technology, Pinnacle Charter School has delivered instruction across the state of Arizona to more than 35,000 students in over twenty years.

Today, Pinnacle provides education to more than 1,000 students and awards more than 10,000 high school credits each year. We are one of the first organizations to receive AdvancED Corporation Accreditation and remain one of few organizations worldwide that enjoy this reputation.
