Pinecrest Academy is pleased to announce that our campus will be open for in-person instruction on August 6, 2020. For more information, click here.

As one of the best private Catholic schools in Atlanta, Georgia, and the nation, Pinecrest offers a high school environment that will challenge your child on many levels. Our academic programs implement proven approaches to learning, which foster mastery of skills necessary for success in college. This task is accomplished in a Christian atmosphere that supports, teaches, and demands individual responsibility, critical thinking, and internalized discipline.

Our four pillar approach to Catholic education is designed to educate the whole child, with our desire to instill Christian servant leadership that will carry into adulthood. Our success is confirmed by rankings and awards we have earned since 2007, including our designation  as the #2 Catholic High School in the State of Georgia by Niche.com. Pinecrest’s private high school is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). 

We continue to maintain a one hundred percent graduation rate, and our college scholarship awards continue to break records, with the Class of 2019 (72 graduates) receiving $7.7 million, with acceptances from 89 colleges and universities. 

We believe that instilling a “servant heart” in students is key to a private Catholic education, and our high school students will have completed at least 40 service hours by the time they graduate. 

On Graduation day at Pinecrest Academy, you can feel confident that your child has received the very best in a Catholic education at one of the best private schools in Georgia, and is poised to achieve great things with a joyful heart and giving spirit as a Pinecrest Academy graduate.
