The Piney Woods School

The Piney Woods School is approved by the state of Mississippi, accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.

The Piney Woods School is not an alternative or boot camp school. It is a private residential (boarding), college preparatory high school, grades 9-12, dedicated to the proposition that ALL children can learn and achieve higher levels of academic attainment if given the opportunity, encouragement, and environment.

The Piney Woods School sits on approximately 2,000 acres in a rural area 21 miles south of Jackson, Mississippi. The school grounds are divided into a 65-acre main campus and a 500- acre research and demonstration farm. The remaining acreage is managed timberland. The Piney Woods School Farm serves as a laboratory classroom as well as produces some of the food consumed on campus. Working in conjunction with leading agricultural universities, students at The Piney Woods School learn and practice new and progressive techniques in horticulture, soil studies, nutrition, farm management, animal science, agricultural economics and environmental science.

Considering Piney Woods School?

As I travel throughout the United States, I share with everyone the amazing story of The Piney Woods School. From its humble beginnings with one student on a cedar log to its miraculous growth to 2,000 acres and 275 students, The Piney Woods School has become one of the best educational opportunities for any student who seeks higher education. I invite parents or guardians of rising ninth through eleventh grade students to apply to a school that consistently places 97% of its graduates into America’s finest colleges and universities.

The campus is a melting pot of cultures and experiences. In an average year, Piney Woods enrolls students from 28 states and up to five foreign countries. The students, faculty and staff come together in a Christian environment dedicated to preparing young people for the challenges of the future.

At The Piney Woods School, high expectations for academic achievement and social responsibility are combined with supportive and nurturing educators. The result is the creation of an affordable education that produces well-rounded citizens of the world.
