This is an exciting time to be a Pine Crest Panther! Over the summer, you will receive details from your child's Division Head about preparing for the start of school. In the meantime, here are some answers to frequently asked questions:

    Dear Pine Crest Parents,

    We are excited that your child will be joining us this fall at Pine Crest School!  You will receive further information over the next few months to help with the transition, and answer pertinent questions related to the start of school in August.   

    One important date to add to your calendar now is Placement Testing on Saturday, May 18. Middle School students on both campuses and Upper School students will be taking placement tests to determine course selections. While Middle School students are testing, parents will have the opportunity to meet with Division Heads. Additional details including arrival time and location will be forthcoming. In the meantime, please save the date.

    As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Admission at admission@pinecrest.edu or 954-492-4103. We are happy to help!
