 Welcome to P.A.C.E.

Pinkerton Academy's mission is to provide a learning experience for students who have not succeeded academically or socially in the traditional classroom setting.

We are committed to providing a safe, diverse, and nurturing environment that promotes academic alternatives, and the development of skills and values necessary for future success.

We are also committed to providing students with quality educational opportunities that enable/empower students to become independent, self-sufficient life long learners and productive members of the community.   

Brief Program Descriptions:

Afternoon/Evening School at Pinkerton Academy

The Adult Diploma Program, housed in The Academy Building on campus, offers both afternoon and evening courses. Typically students who opt for the Adult Diploma which requires 20, not 22 credits are behind in credits and/or required courses and wish to catch up in order to graduate with their classmates. Students can attend afternoon/evening school for the Adult Diploma, recovery credits or as a part of an alternative education plan. Classes are held in the afternoon and evenings, Monday through Thursday.

 Pre-HiSET at Pinkerton Academy

Students can raise their HiSET pre-test scores by attending efficiency classes in Math, Reading and Writing. These classes are held from 2:30pm to 4:00pm Monday and Tuesday.

HiSET at The Upper Room

The HiSET program, housed off campus at The Upper Room, assists students in preparing for the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) and exploring college and career options for continued success beyond High School. It is for students 16 years old with at least 9 credits.

 Ombudsman at the Alternative Learning Center

The Ombudsman Program, housed off-site at the Alternative Learning Center, is typically for students who are one to two years behind in credits and find the Pinkerton campus challenging due to academic, emotional, and/or social difficulties. Students attend for an assigned 3 hour session and are required to do 15 hours of work and/or volunteering.

OMBUDSMAN at the Alternative Learning Center


The Ombudsman Program, housed off-site at 10A Street in Derry, is typically for students who are one to two years behind in credits and find the Pinkerton Campus challenging due to academic, emotional, and/or social difficulties.  The primary focus of the Ombudsman Program is credit recovery with the intention that a student would return to Pinkerton once reaching junior status.  With permission, students may remain at the Alternative Learning Center and graduate with an Ombudsman Diploma.  Students attend for an assigned 3 hour session and are required to do 15 hours of work and/or volunteering as part of their programming.
