Welcome to Pinecrest Academy

We believe that a complete education must address the formation of both the student’s mind and character. The rich content of our liberal arts-based curriculum allows our students to discover the world around them, think critically about it, and meet the challenges of life. By implementing the pedagogy of the Legionaries of Christ and the Regnum Christi Movement, which includes a diverse athletics program and a rich experience of the fine arts, our program of personal formation in the Catholic tradition cultivates the character and personal development of our students in parallel with their academic development. The end result is a complete human being who actively seeks what is true, possesses the tools to discover it and the integrity of character to put it into action.

Pinecrest Academy was named #2 Catholic High School in the State of Georgia by Niche.com and has been designated a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School by the United States Department of Education, the only PreK-12 in the State of Georgia to receive this honor. The school has been recognized for the eleventh consecutive year as a School of Excellence by the Cardinal Newman Society Catholic School Honor Roll. Pinecrest is one of just two Catholic high schools in the State of Georgia to receive this honor.

What parents and students are saying:

"On a whim, we attended an Open House, more out of curiosity than a need since we were very happy with the experiences our children were having in the public school system. From the moment we drove on campus, we began to see what makes PA so special. It sounds implausible to say a school that you've visited one time could feel like family, but it absolutely did. By the time we had heard from parents, teachers and the administration, my husband and I were convinced this was the type of learning environment in which we wanted our children. We had high expectations going in, and they continue to be exceeded at every turn. The cost of tuition is definitely a factor for our family, but the sacrifices we are making to give our children this experience is absolutely worth it to us." - Julie Boucek, Pinecrest Parent

“We are not Catholic but feel so at home at Pinecrest. The school considers us 'family' and the entire Pinecrest community is dedicated to making everyone feel included. Pinecrest provides an academically challenging education for children of all faith backgrounds, and even provides a separate report card based on character development. This is huge! Life is more than just a grade; it is how the individual grows into adulthood.” - Nikki Van Wingerden, Pinecrest Parent

“I love Pinecrest because of the opportunities I couldn’t get anywhere else. I get the chance to play on a sports team and give my all at something that I love. Another thing I love about Pinecrest is that I get the chance to grow in my faith and learn about God.”  
~ Sarah Black, 8th Grade Student
