Seniors and Service

One of the pillars of a Pinecrest education is Apostolic Formation, which translates to generosity of self to Christ.

Apostolic formation brings Intellectual, Human, and Spiritual formation into harmony by providing the opportunity to discern Christ’s call for one’s life, embrace that call, and bring others to know Him, too. 

The Class of 2021 exemplified this pillar well by giving of themselves with 3,991 service hours during their four years in high school.

The mission of Pinecrest Academy is reflected in the word Integer, which is Latin for “whole,” or “entire,” and reflects our goal of forming the whole child as an authentic “Person in Christ.” The school motto Semper Altius, means “Always Higher,” and challenges our students, parents, staff and faculty to strive for excellence in all areas of Integral Formation® - intellectual, spiritual, human and apostolic.
Pinecrest Academy is a private Catholic school conveniently located in Cumming, South Forsyth, just minutes from Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton and Suwanee. We serve families of all faiths seeking a Christian education for their children.
