Enrollment Overview

Thank you for considering Pinnacle for your student.  We proudly teach Kindergarten through 12th Grade. Our application is open for students in all Colorado public school districts.

 

Pinnacle is a public charter school. Charter schools are a unique and important part of Colorado's education system. Charter schools are open to all students and offer families an alternative to their zoned public schools.  Pinnacle and all charter schools:
