Pinckney Academy is an alternative Middle School and High School in Carthage, North Carolina. It is a part of the Moore County public schools system. Previously, the school was different from the other traditional schools in the county. Up until the 2009-2010 school year, it offered high school students only to seek credit hours under independent study. This meant that a student could get credit for a course as soon as he/she is finished with the two packets per course the instructor provides for the student. In addition, there is no lecture for the student as he or she is self-teaching the subject on their own. Inside the packet has assignments that the student would have to complete by reading the textbook first then answer the questions from the assignment. A grade below 70 would not acceptable where the student would have to re-do the assignment until a satisfactory grade is made. This is different from the traditional school where a course lasts a semester or a year long which would include a teacher doing a lecture for the course. Since the 2009-2010 school year, the curriculum has gone back to the traditional way as the other schools are in the county.
