Our Heritage

Pine Forge Academy is a historically African-American co-educational Seventh-day Adventist boarding academy serving grades nine through twelve in Pine Forge, Pennsylvania. The beautiful campus resides on the historical property once owned by Thomas Rutter, an abolitionist iron miller, deeded to him by William Penn in the early 1700s. Pine Forge Academy was first called Pine Forge Institute and opened its doors on September 9, 1946, with ninety pioneer students.
