Our Story


Pineapple Cove Academy, a highly successful early learning facility located in the Bayside Lakes Division of Palm Bay, has inspired the application for Pineapple Cove Classical Academy. Demand from parents for a K-8 opportunity that matches the rigorous and successful VPK program at the early learning facility has been the impetus for Pineapple Cove Classical Academy’s inception. Last year, Pineapple Cove Academy scored 95 out of 100 on the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS), an exemplary performance that is an example of the expectations we carry to the K-8 arena. This built-in base will be the cornerstone of the school, and the reason behind a lower elementary initial focus, with expansion to middle and high school in coming years.

Pineapple Cove Academy’s early learning facility sets the standard for what a successful and academically-oriented preschool should be. We intend to carry this mission of student success forward to Pineapple Cove Classical Academy.

The Visionary

John Moran had the vision and wisdom that shaped Pineapple Cove Classical Academy. Through his perseverance and dedication to his parents and community, Pineapple Cove Classical Academy was born. John has an uncanny ability in making dreams become realities and the journey that became Pineapple Cove Classical Academy is no different. The result of this perseverance, we believe, will result in a school unlike any other in Brevard County.
