I graduated in 2006 and every year since I constantly find reasons to bring my high school up in conversation. My experience was life-changing with an emphasis on character development and a greater appreciation for the arts. I can`t wait to send my children to my alma matter.

I am a graduate of this fine school. It provided me with the spiritual and academic foundations that resulted in me completing not only a B.A. degree, but also two graduate degrees from Columbia University. PFA took at chance on me when I was 12 years old, and I will forever value the experience.

graduated from Pine Forge Academy 56 years ago. It was a great christian school then and I believe it still is. the united states senate chaplain Barry Black graduated from this school also. This school prepares one to be an outstanding citizen in this world and a citizen for God's new world to come.
