Pinewood Academics
Pinewood was founded on the principle that it offers excellence in a private, Christian, nondenominational, college-preparatory school.  The curriculum materials and instructional approaches are geared toward students who will ultimately go on to post-secondary collegiate studies. Christian principles and precepts have always been the very foundation of Pinewood, and they are the rocks upon which our school stands.  Our mission is to love, discipline and educate children while developing the mind and promoting standards of excellence in academics, athletics, and behavior.  We maintain a steadfast commitment to guiding the intellectual and personal development of children and a belief in the importance of educating all dimensions of students.  While our philosophy encompasses an understanding of varying levels of academic ability, differences in learning styles, and multiple instructional strategies, our goal is firmly rooted in the college preparatory mode.  We celebrate individuality within the communal life of family, community, church and state while encouraging the love of God in Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Student Support Learning: The Learning Support Center provides tutorial assistance for any student who wishes to maintain higher averages, and for those students who may have academic difficulty.

Pinewood Reader Program : Students in Pre-K through eighth grade are reading more and improving in comprehension skills that are encouraged through the Pinewood Reader Program.

Lower School Curriculum

Saxon Math, Saxon Phonics and the A Beka Book Series are the materials predominantly used in the Lower School.  The A Beka Book approach to Christian education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable. The publications are built upon the firm foundation of Scriptural truth.  The materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practicality.   Through the Saxon curriculums, all new concepts are developed through hands-on activities and rich conversations that actively engage students in the learning process. Concepts are developed, reviewed, and practiced over time.
   
Junior High Curriculum   
Pinewood Christian Academy is committed to high academic achievement and life skills development in a safe, Christian environment.   The junior high provides a transitional bridge between elementary and high school, offering education of high quality, guided by the principles and values revealed in the Bible, God's written Word.  The A Beka language series continues through the junior high grades featuring a complete course of study in grammar, composition, literature, vocabulary, spelling, and poetry.  Individual student potential is promoted by providing a variety of learning and teaching strategies as well as assessment opportunities.
High School Curriculum  
The high school program at Pinewood Christian Academy currently offers two diplomas:  the College Preparatory Diploma and the College Preparatory with Distinction Diploma.  A vigorous academic and intellectual environment encourages independence of thought in an atmosphere of mutual respect and consideration.  Many opportunities are provided for students to practice and develop leadership, sportsmanship, courtesy, dependability, and integrity.  A Biblical perspective on truth and reality transcends the curriculum at all levels and in all subject areas. Service Hours are a requirement for graduation from PCA.
