Black Boarding Schools Impact Future of Learning

During legalized segregation, black boarding schools imbued students with a profound sense of community and identity and celebrated academic excellence. Tapping this legacy, Piney Woods School empowers--integrating discovery, creativity, and entrepreneurship using our forests, lakes and farm as classrooms. Living relationally and contributing as citizens, students build integrity and embrace individual promise. We prepare students for life with a model that could reshape the future of learning.
