For more than a century, The Piney Woods School has provided a holistic education to thousands of young students in a safe and nurturing environment. Occupying 2,000 acres of rolling timberland and sparkling lakes, the school is located 20 miles south of Jackson, Mississippi on a rural campus.
The Piney Woods school has become a leading college preparatory boarding high school with 98 percent of graduating seniors enroll in some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the nation each year.
Our success is founded on the guiding principle that informed the school’s philosophy over a century ago: Educating the “head, heart, and hands” of each student who enters our gates with a paradigm based on Christian ideals.
Are now open!
A gift to The Piney Woods School is an investment in our students, the future of learning, and the future of humanity. We provide quality education, grounded in a pedagogy emphasizing the “Head, Heart, and Hands,” educating the whole child. We are empowering young people with the transferable skills needed to become compassionate and ethical leaders in the 21st century.
Each year between 98 % and 100% of our graduating seniors continue on to colleges and universities throughout the nation. Our students also participate in local community, such as in Leadership Jackson, Leadership Rankin, and the Presidential Classroom. Our primary focus is helping young develop their full potential, and become global citizens, for the new millennium.
Without the generosity of our supporters and partners, our school would not exist to help our students fulfill their limitless potential. Our students seek the opportunity to make a positive difference in society and build a great future for themselves. Every student receives financial support from us because every student contributes to life on campus either through our work study program, community service, or daily and weekly chores. Our ultimate goal is that no student will be denied a Piney Woods education because of a family’s limited financial circumstances.
