Spring Sports

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.

  • Paladin Pacer 5K and Fun Run -- Fun Competitions Kick Off Soon!

    Did you enjoy too much home cooking over Christmas? Did you resolve to exercise more? Are you an avid running seeking a 5K event? Well, we’ve got the perfect solution…
    Grab your family and friends and join us for the 3rd Annual Paladin Pacer 5K and Fun Run on Saturday, February 26, 2022!
    The Paladin Pacer  is a 2022 Peachtree Road Race qualifier, and we offer the option to run on-site or as a "Ghost Runner." All funds raised will benefit Pinecrest Academy's Annual Fund, which supports our current and future students and their families.

    Not only is this a great Pinecrest event, it's a beautiful community-builder, too!  Get to know your Forsyth County neighbors while supporting your school.

    We've got fun competitions in store -- kicking off the Monday of Catholic Schools Week, January 31!  Because CSW is a celebration of Catholic schools, and our collective commitment as Catholic schools is to love and serve others, we're asking our runners/walkers to consider donating used books when they register, which will be donated to the poor in rural villages in Ghana, Africa through the Ghana Friendship Project. Collections for our "Booking It" campaign will take place January 31-February 4, and bins will be located in each school lobby.

    To add to the fun, we encourage you to form teams to ramp up the competition. You can run or walk -- whatever suits you! We foresee some creative team costumes on race day, too!

    Here are details on the event:
    5K - 8:00am
