Pinewood provides students with the knowledge and support that empowers them to take charge of the college application process.

Our students develop the self-understanding to seek and gain admission to a college where they will continue to grow both academically and socially.

Pinewood offers a comprehensive College Counseling Program with personalized attention for each student. Our office is a complete “one-stop shop” for researching and applying to college. We believe students should take ownership of their college search as passionately as they do their studies and activities. With the student at the center – and recognizing that the student’s transition to college involves the whole family – we provide extensive, individualized support throughout the high school years. In fact, our students often seek college environments that reflect what they value at Pinewood: close relationships with faculty; challenging academics; and active, friendly communities.

Our goal is to help our students to find the right match through a series of processes and activities tailored around a supportive and individualized process that encourages self-awareness, personal growth, confidence, and decision-making. Our student-centered approach will empower your child to reflect on their talents, interests, goals, values, and aspirations in search of the right “fit.”

100% of Pinewood graduates are accepted to and matriculate to colleges and universities. But how do we measure success? Smiling students sharing how happy they are with their new school and community.

Individualized Paths, Communal Support

Students at Pinewood are encouraged to inquire, engage, and be aspirational. These six seniors represent an entire class of graduates who exemplify that truth.

"Our student-centered approach will empower your child to reflect on their talents, interests, goals, values, and aspirations in search of the right fit."
