The Class of 2018 exemplified this pillar well by racking up 11,575 service hours during their four years of high school!

During what has been considered a "life-changing" experience for most, our seniors served abroad, traveling to Nicaragua on the annual Senior Mission Trip. 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.

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.
