    All 3 of my children attended Pinecrest Academy. They received more than just a strong academic education. The school teaches students strong character skills as well as the Catholic faith. The family environment is wonderful where some of our best friendships and our children's best friendships were formed. I highly recommend Pinecrest!

    Teacher and student attrition is rampant. Last school year, four teachers, of the junior class alone, were fired or left before winter break. This year there are only 16 girls in the entire sophomore class. More of an emphasis is placed on being gender separate rather than providing separate honors or accelerated classes. This school year EVERY sophomore girl takes the same math, science, and language arts class and receives honors credit, regardless of their skill set.This year the head high school counselor quit and no announcement was made to the seniors or their parents. Little to no personal teacher to parent communication occurs in the middle school and high school. New administration started again this year and hopefully changes will be on the horizon.
    After moving from Baltimore to Cumming GA, our family has found an amazing home at Pinecrest Academy. From the teachers to the overall spiritual community our three sons have flourish in just the short time we have been there. We couldn't be happier with the education our sons are receiving and we are grateful for this amazing community who strives to not only develop our sons academically but they truly are helping us build confident and considerate leaders .
