The Pinewood Scholars Program

The Pinewood Scholars Program (PSP) is our signature initiative for juniors and seniors. By inviting our students to engage in design thinking, project-based learning, and community partnerships, PSP empowers students to become changemakers in their world.

Over the course of their junior year, PSP students work in groups to create a mission-inspired project. In the process, they research social issues by watching documentaries, listening to podcasts, and exploring local non-profits. During senior year, students build upon what they learned during junior year and create their own socially-minded endeavors, educate others, and lead efforts toward making real change.

We are pleased to share what PSP has been up to over the summer and in the first weeks of the 2022-23 school year.

We hope you will be inspired by our adventures and endeavors!
