    59 Niche users give it an average review of 3.9 stars.

    Featured Review: Parent says Pine Forge Academy is a great school. I would encourage everyone who knows the value of an Adventist Christian Education to have their child or children enrolled there. The teachers are warm, kind, and very attentive to the population being served. One of the main things I admire as a mother, whenever I reached out to Leadership with a concern they always return phone calls or emails promptly.I have seen my son matured so much enrolling as a Freshman at PFA, now in his Junior Year. Highly Recommend. Teamwork - Prayers and Dedication for the population being served. Great Place to learn.
