Therapeutic Alternative School Classroom

Individualized Plans Meet Unique Needs of Every Student

Pinnacle Alternative School

RAISE Program | Credit Recovery Program

The academic programs of The Pinnacle Schools (TPS) are designed to support students academically and therapeutically by providing a safe learning environment in which their self-esteem is positively impacted by success in school. Our programs are accredited by AdvancED/SACS and in Behavioral Health Care by The Joint Commission.

TPS started several years ago as a private school in Huntsville, AL. In 2012, TPS added the RAISE Program when it expanded its day school program through a contract with Huntsville City Schools (HCS) to provide HCS's alternative school program for middle and high school students. RAISE Program grew out of the need to provide a safe learning environment for students who were at risk of dropping out of high school. The mission then, and continues to be, to instill in our students Responsibility, Accountability, Integrity, Self-awareness and Excellence.

HCS determines which students may attend the RAISE Program. Students are chosen from those that have been expelled from HCS due to behavior or truancy issues; or seniors that need to recover credits in order to graduate with their class. Regardless of the reason for attending, most students succeed in the smaller classrooms, individualized work stations and one-on-one attention that Pinnacle provides. Highly Qualified and State Certified teachers are supported by Behavior Interventionists trained to recognize and intervene before maladaptive behaviors escalate.

To find out if your child may transfer to the RAISE Program, please contact your HCS representative (usually your child's school guidance counselor).
