Welcome to Pinewood!

Our admission process is intentionally thorough because we want to get to know our prospective students and families. It is important that we understand an applicant’s goals, hopes, needs, and reasons for selecting Pinewood. 

Choosing the best educational setting for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We invite you to visit with us for an inside look and see for yourself why so many families choose Pinewood as their partner in education.

Admission is selective and is based on personal motivation and behavior, testing results, prior school records, recommendations, shadow day/interview, and available openings. The admission staff may also conduct testing as part of the application process. Preschool and kindergarten eligibility is based on skill assessment to evaluate readiness.

Pinewood is dedicated to excellence in the intellectual, physical, ethical, and social development of its students, families, faculty and staff. The Pinewood family strives to engage and enrich community, both locally and globally.

We would love to take you on a personalized tour of our campus and meet our Pinewood Family.  We look forward to meeting you soon!
