What parents and students are saying...

“We are not Catholic but feel so at home at Pinecrest. The school considers us 'family' and the entire Pinecrest community is dedicated to making everyone feel included. Pinecrest provides an academically challenging education for children of all faith backgrounds, and even provides a separate report card based on character development. This is huge! Life is more than just a grade; it is how the individual grows into adulthood.” - Nikki Van Wingerden, Pinecrest Parent

"As a new family to Pinecrest, we were happy to find a truly welcoming atmosphere from administrators, teachers, and parents alike. There is a genuine sense of caring for the whole family which made our transition much easier." - Karen Kress, Pinecrest Parent

“At Pinecrest I’m surrounded by encouraging teachers and a Catholic community that I call my second family. With so many amazing opportunities to learn and serve, I’m able to grow in leadership, faith, and my understanding of the world.” - Anne Frain, High School Student
