PINES ACADEMY is a private school serving 8th-12th grade students and home schooling families on the Ridge in or near the communities of Magalia and Paradise.

Our Philosophy:

Our philosophy of education is simple… Educate anyone, anywhere, anytime, to the best of our ability, with a Biblical foundation to become competent, moral citizens. 

Because of this philosophy, we have been able to impact the lives of individuals, young and old, around the planet who would not otherwise have been able to receive education or a Biblical understanding. We have established learning centers in rehabilitation centers, libraries, homes, donut shops and anywhere else there has been a need. For over 20 years we have practiced equity in education as the primary tool for putting our philosophy into action.


The mission of PA is to overcome our current obstacles while educating students in the practice of Biblically based critical thinking, and enable them to conquer in their personal and academic lives.

We currently provide:

  • Classroom instruction
  • Butte College connection
  • Tutoring
  • Integrated Classes

Students are encouraged to discover their unique talents and strengths to enable them to be …

  • Life-long learners
  • Creative thinkers
  • Productive, self-confident citizens

The Pines Academy campus enables Remote Schooling families to meet the education goals that they have set for their students as well as meeting state standards.
