At Pinecrest Academy, we believe athletics plays a very important role in preparing our student-athletes to strive to maximize their character and leadership skills. Our school motto "semper altius", meaning "always higher", challenges our students to be their best for the team and for Christ. Our philosophy of Integral Formation® is incorporated into the athletic program as we work to develop Christian leaders who will transform society. 

Pinecrest offers 15 sports to our student-athletes, including our Junior Paladins program for our younger children, Middle School sports and GHSA sanctioned Varsity sports.
