MSN, CRNA, Founder, President and CEO

Karen Lee, the CEO of the Pinnacle Schools and its wilderness camps, Elk River Treatment Program and Academy, has been turning around the lives of troubled teens in Huntsville City for years. Karen placed her own son in a program at the age of 16. It was a leap of faith to place her trust in the hands of perfect strangers but more than anything she wanted to know her son would be safe and cared for. The number one priority of the programs of The Pinnacle Schools is the safety and care of all. The programs of The Pinnacle Schools are just that; a challenge. It is a contest; not necessarily of skill or strength, but of character; the deepest part of who we are as human beings. . .I invite you to talk with me at any time and look forward to working with you and your teen.
