About This Activity

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.

This year Pine Forge Academy is commemorating its 70thAnniversary. This important milestone gives us the opportunity to celebrate with events and activities that will highlight our past and spotlight our future. We invite you to join us on September 4, 2016, at PFA for ‘Race for the Forge’ a 5K race and fun walk to celebrate our rich ‘Legacy of Excellence!’
