PMA HISTORY

Pinnacle Montessori Academy was founded in 2006 when Kaki Reddy and Alex Freeman decided to share their passion for Montessori learning by building their first school in Murphy, Texas. This began a lifetime adventure for Kaki and Alex, spanning from one school to multiple locations and franchises within their first ten years of operation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1586847587979{background-color: #f2f2f2 !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/5″][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”204″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/5″][vc_column_text]Kaki Reddy – CEO

Kaki Vasundhara Reddy began her career as an architect in India before moving to the United States where she obtained her Master’s Degree in Computer Science. Kaki currently works at Texas Instruments in the Educational Technology Products division where she develops tools such as calculators and educational software for teachers and students.

In 2005, Kaki realized her dream of opening her first Pinnacle Montessori Academy. Originally named Heritage Montessori, this school served as the model for what would eventually become the Pinnacle Montessori Academy Franchise Model. By combining her architectural skills and her passion for education services, Kaki designed a building that is modern, efficient, low cost and safe for children. Kaki’s experiences in operations and management established many of the processes and procedures that are in place today.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”4/5″][vc_column_text]Alex Freeman – President
