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.

A Message from Our Founders

“Pineapple Cove Classical Academy is a natural extension of Pineapple Cove Academy Early Learning facility where excellence in early education has been established at the preschool level. It is with the overwhelming support of our parents and community that Pineapple Cove Classical Academy has become a reality.” – John and Beth Moran, Founders
