The average number of Pinecrest graduates, beginning with our first graduating class of 2007, who go on to play college sports after graduation, is 9% (or 61 graduates). The national average each year is 7%. Of these grads, 28% have played D1 and 38% have played D2. Pretty impressive for a high school whose largest graduating class to date is 73 students!

Seniors and Service

The Class of 2020 exemplified this pillar well by racking up over 8,000 service hours during their four years of high school!  

A milestone for our seniors is the Senior Mission Trip, an opportunity to bring the years of Integral Formation full circle with a major apostolic event - serving some of the poorest of the poor. This year, 25 seniors and chaperones flew to Guatemala and cared for children and the disabled, and helped build a church.

This class has also served locally and throughout Atlanta, assisting the poor, caring for disabled children, visiting the elderly, visiting prisoners, donating to the needy, and more.  
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.

SEMPER ALTIUS = ALWAYS HIGHER

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.
