Brief Description

Pine Forge Academy (PFA) is a leader in providing academic excellence to African American students from across the nation and the Caribbean. Of its 3,500 alumni, 98% have gone on to enter and finish college. Pine Forge Academy was established in 1946 on grounds formerly owned by Quaker abolitionists who facilitated a segment of the Underground Railroad through the property.  True to its founding purpose to provide a holis­tic approach to learning, PFA focuses its education on developing the heart, the head and the hand.
