Piney Woods School | Education
Welcome to The Piney Woods School, where we are changing America, and the world, one student at a time. Our 2,000 acre campus, which is filled with lakes and trees, draws each visitor into the wonderfully powerful experience that is The Piney Woods School.
Our mission is to provide excellence in education within a Christian environment through the creation of an exceptional academic model which supports the tenet that all students can learn, develop a strong work ethic, and lead extraordinary lives through academic achievement and responsible citizenship. As an interdenominational Christian school, we affirm the values of faith, discipline, excellence, and service.
The Piney Woods School is the flagship of the four remaining historically African-American boarding schools in the United States. With thousands of alumni who have come from all over the United States and the world, The Piney Woods School has been a hallmark of excellence in its 100-year history. Our alums have attended Princeton, Smith, Harvard, Howard, Hampton, Tuskegee, Florida A&M, and many of the country’s other outstanding public and private colleges and universities. They have pursued degrees in medicine, law, marketing, education, administration, and the arts and have become leaders in their respective fields.
We have been challenged with a great mission: to continue to fulfill the legacy began 100 years ago by Dr. Laurence Jones and to continue to train young men and women leaders who are:
• Educationally astute
• Morally responsible
• Civically engaged
• Socially equipped
• Technologically proficient
• Globally perceptive
But most of all, we are challenged to train leaders who have hearts that are full of compassion, energy, and faith.
We are proud of our heritage and excited about our future. Please feel free to contact us or stop by if you are in the area and be a part of the passion that is the Piney Woods experience.
