As a Catholic school, Pinecrest Institute mission is "the complete, integral formation of the young in cooperation with their parents, in order to provide society with constructive leaders, convinced builders of the civilization of justice and love, according to the principles of Christian humanism." We provide an atmosphere of academic rigor and critical thinking, while offering personalized attention in a Christ- centered environment of faith and reason. We prepare our students to become committed Christian leaders, eager to transform a global society. We accomplish this in a gender separate environment on a co-institutional campus. Following the educational philosophy of the Legionaries of Christ, we implement Integral Formation to develop the spiritual, intellectual, human, and apostolic dimensions of the whole person. We challenge our students to identify and use their gifts in service to others. Recognizing the parent as the primary educator of the child, our mission embraces the entire family. We provide a safe, moral, and spiritual environment which leads to positive peer groups and joyful, caring, confident students.
We have established and made this vision our own involving administrators, support staff, teachers, parents and Legionaries of Christ, and it is defined as follows: "Pinecrest Institute is an institution dedicated to develop a high academic level in our students according to international standards, offering personalized attention, using technological resources in an ethical and productive manner, forming solid spiritual, human, intellectual and apostolic values in our students".
