Attend a Public Event: You are welcome to visit any of our public events. Join us for football, volleyball, band concerts, drama productions, baseball, or soccer, to name just a few. We would also love to see you at our morning Mass each weekday at 7am during the school year. Complimentary tickets for any event can be obtained by calling us.

Step 2: Apply for Admission

At Pinecrest we understand and appreciate the importance of choosing the right school for your family. Once your family has had the opportunity to tour our school and you decide you would like your student to be considered for admission, visit our website and complete the online application (A $150 application fee applies).

Step 3: Apply for Financial Aid (optional)

To apply for financial aid, please visit our tuition assistance webpage.

Step 4: Student Evaluation

To ensure we have a thorough understanding of your child’s abilities, we will review your student’s previous academic history. Depending on grade level, this will include transcript evaluation, standardized test review, and evaluations from current teachers and principals. All required documents must be received by Pinecrest Academy before the student evaluation can be completed.

A grade level entrance evaluation will be given to each student applying for admission. For Pre-K and Kindergarten aged children, the evaluation is merely a school readiness assessment. Students applying for admission to middle and high school are required to take the Secondary School Admissions Test. Information about the SSAT can be found at www.ssat.org. In addition to the grade level entrance evaluation, Middle School and High School students will be interviewed by the school Principal or Dean of Students. Our admissions department will contact you to schedule the appropriate assessments and to assist you with requesting transcripts from your child’s current school.

Step 5: Parent Interview

Enrolling in private school is a significant decision for a family. At Pinecrest, we want to provide an opportunity for you to ask our Admissions Director any questions that you may have about Pinecrest. The Parent Interview is the place to have those questions answered. The Admissions Director will help you to understand our philosophy of education, what you can expect from Pinecrest and your responsibilities as a Pinecrest parent. The admissions office will schedule the Parent Interview after we complete your student’s evaluation.

Step 6: Admissions Decision

The Admissions Committee will review all of the evaluation materials and will inform you in writing of their decision.
