As an alumni parent, I have been inspired by my daughter’s beautiful and successful experience over the course of her four years as a student at Piney Woods.

- CASANDRA ADAMS, Mississippi

Piney Woods has a legendary tradition of transforming young boys and girls, helping them reach their Godly potential and preparing them for college or whatever path that they may take

- REV. SKIP MASON, Georgia

The Piney Woods School was a great decision for my son. Being away from home was very new for him because this was his first time being on his own. The Piney Woods School taught my son life skills and I am very proud of the young man he has become

- REV. SKIP MASON, Georgia

The best way to learn more about The Piney Woods School is to schedule a visit. Our historic campus has captivated visitors since its humble beginnings in 1909. Learning about our rich history and tradition is as easy as scheduling a campus tour today.

We offer daily tours and shadow days for prospective students. You can also schedule a tour as a family. Once you see the campus and meet The Piney Woods School family, you will feel like you are at home. If you are interested in scheduling a tour, please contact our Admissions Team. We would very much like to meet you and encourage you to tour our campus. We appreciate your interest and hope to assist you in any way we can.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at (601) 845-2214. If you are unable to make accommodations for an on-site visit, check out our virtual tour.

Right now, our chief concern is the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. To maintain a healthy learning and work environment, we adhere to the physical distancing guidelines prescribed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Mississippi State Department of Health. The availability of campus tours may be affected due to COVID-19.

Piney Woods encourages prospective students of all income levels to apply for acceptance to the school. A family’s financial need plays no role in the admission decision. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to receive the highest quality education and a nurturing environment that enables them to reach their God-given potential.

To serve as many students as possible while still allowing our business operations to continue, school-based financial assistance and our student work-study program are provided to all qualified families. Once admitted, the parent(s) must provide documentation of income and major expenses to receive a tuition assessment. The amount of tuition assistance awarded is contingent upon each family’s financial situation. Periodically, we provide student enrollment discounts based on class year, space availability and fund availability.

For more information, please contact the admissions office at 601.845.2214 or email for more information about tuition assistance and multiple enrollments discounts.
