As a unique, independent academy, Pinkerton Academy's mission is to strive to ensure the growth of all students in a challenging, respectful, and collaborative environment. The Academy fosters a student-centered community with purposefully designed, interactive and relevant learning opportunities.

To facilitate and aid the transition from eighth grade to Pinkerton, the Freshman Academy offers a wide range of programming throughout the course of the year. One of the staples of this programming is Freshman Seminar. 

 All freshmen will have seminar four days per week during the entire year and will explore a wide range of topics and experiences that lay the foundation for a successful high school career. For more detailed information, please explore the links below!
