“To maintain a joyful family requires much from both the parents and the children." ~ Saint John-Paul II

Our Pinecrest Family Life programs exist with this premise in mind, designed to support our families in the Integral Formation® of their children, through parenting formation, spiritual growth, and marriage enrichment. We want to accompany and help strengthen parents for the benefit of their beautiful children.

We believe that the essential relationship between Pinecrest Academy and parents, who are the primary educators of their children, is collaborating with and supporting them in the formation of their children into Christian leaders. Family Life serves as a valuable tool for families gifted with this most important role!

In addition to supporting each individual family, the Pinecrest Family Life program seeks to build community among all of our families. Families have the opportunity to engage with one another in a unique and enriching way through Family Life, and treasured friendships have been forged through participation in the various programs.

What parents are saying:

"The Family Life programs offer excellent opportunities for personal and spiritual growth as a parent and as a family.  Many of the events also provide a chance for families to bond and experience the strong sense of community that exists at Pinecrest.“ - Jennifer Althardt, Pinecrest parent

"At Pinecrest, we found our life community.” - Mark and Hope Thatcher, alumni parents

“One of the things I was most impressed with when we arrived at Pinecrest was the Family Life program. I couldn’t believe that a school would have a program like that, and that you wouldn’t just drop your kids off at school. Our family had the support that Family Life offered which we had not found in public school.” - Vivian Heard, alumni parent
Our Mission: To form Christian leaders who will transform society.
