Welcome to Pine Ridge! A wonderful place where “equipping minds and nurturing hearts to transform the world for Jesus Christ” is not only our mission, but also our hearts’ desire in classwork, in projects, and in relationships with one another!

Pine Ridge is a unique third grade through sixth grade school, with caring teachers, guiding and mentoring students through their educational experiences. Pine Ridge has aspects of both an elementary school and a middle school. In third and fourth grades, we emphasize the reading and writing process across the content areas, the development of complex skills in math, the learning and use of study skills, and the implementation of focused interventions to improve learning. At fifth and sixth grades, we transition from dependent learning to more independent learning, with a gradual shift from the self contained classroom to shared classrooms within specific curriculum areas.

At all levels, one-to-one technology is an integral part of the educational experience with third and fourth grade students using iPads and fifth and sixth grade students using laptops.

As you search our website, you will find more information, helpful facts, and wonderful photos that highlight student activities at and around Pine Ridge. We invite you to read the newsletters and view the photos of various learning units, field trips, school events, and chapels. You might also want to check out our delicious lunch menu, search our media center links, and see our daily school schedule.

You will catch only a glimpse of Pine Ridge by visiting our website, so after visiting us virtually, please stop in and tour our campus. We would enjoy meeting you!

“Our teachers are the heartbeat of HC. They are passionate, sincere, and committed. They live out their faith and encourage my kids to do the same!”
