About Us

We Are Pinewood Proud

Welcome to Pinewood Preparatory School, the Charleston region's premier college preparatory program where students from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade have an opportunity to fulfill their potential in a challenging and supportive environment. Pinewood is continually building upon the values and principles established in 1952 by founder Henrietta Muckenfuss Allan.

We are always looking to make our program stronger and more applicable to the challenges of the 21st century. The core of our school is a faculty unlike no other. 23 Pinewood teachers have earned Master Teacher honors, the most of any independent school in the state. Two thirds of our faculty have advanced degrees. Beyond the credentials and accomplishments, you will find caring and committed adults in every class or grade level. They are both inspired and inspiring.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We look forward to meeting your family, sharing our campus with you, and helping you learn more about Pinewood Prep. Go Panthers!
