Comprehensive Education and Behavioral Health Programs

Pinnacle Programs provide middle and high school students with accredited education and comprehensive behavioral health services. In many cases, students may work at their own pace with close supervision and assistance from highly qualified and State Certified teachers. Teachers are assisted by trained Behavior Interventionists to provide a safe, nurturing learning environment for students. Upon enrollment, each student receives an assessment to develop his or her education and treatment plan. Program leaders work closely with students, parents and other school counselors to design a program that supports the specific needs of each student whether they are gifted or struggling in school or home. Daily therapeutic support is provided by licensed and master's level social workers. Group sessions include the Counseling Stages of Change, Courage Circle, Anger and Aggression Management, Abandonment, Grief and Loss. Students also have access to weekly group sessions led by an Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
