A sincere thank you to all those who participated in the 2014-2015 Pinecrest Annual Fund. Each year Pinecrest Academy appeals for support to our community through the Pinecrest Annual Fund to provide unrestricted funds in support of the school’s operating needs.
Gifts from parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, community partners, friends, and alumni bridge the approximate $1,000.00 per child gap between tuition and the cost of educating a Pinecrest student. These funds provide vital support for daily operations and the ability to respond to immediate needs that directly benefit students. Voluntary financial support is a primary indicator of a school’s health. Giving to the Pinecrest Annual Fund is an important way for families to show support for Pinecrest Academy each year.
We gratefully acknowledge gifts from our community during the 2014-2015 school year. Every effort has been made to accurately list all our contributors through June 30, 2015. However, if you note an error or omission, please accept our apology and notify us at Mrs. Regina Gore, Annual Giving Coordinator or 770-888-4477 X5177.
Thanks to all parents, sponsors, donors and volunteers who made the 2015 Gala a success. Proceeds from the Gala and special "Fund the Cause" appeal were used to build technology infrastructure as well as to update and upgrade classroom technology.
GOAL - Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning – is Pinecrest Academy’s non-profit partner that administers the Georgia income tax redirect program. This program provides much needed scholarship funds to help academically qualified students afford a Pinecrest education. Contributors receive a state tax credit and a charitable deduction on their federal income taxes. Pinecrest benefits through increased enrollment, increased tuition income and more funds available to improve educational and other offerings.
Grandparents Day 2015 welcomed more than 375 grandparents to our campus. The day included a beautiful all school, multi-generational Mass, classroom visits to the Lower, Middle and High Schools. Many students were accompanied by their grandparents to the Book Fair in the Media Center. Classroom visits were made extra special by welcome signs and messages from our youngest students.
Athletics is an important tool for preparing students to maximize their character and leadership skills. Pinecrest Academy offers a full breadth of sports: from football and lacrosse to volleyball, soccer, and cross country. Our athletic programs foster the spirit of personal and team effort, healthy competition, and sportsmanship.
