Nation’s Largest Historically Black Boarding School is Adding Students

The Piney Woods School, one of America’s oldest independent, historically black boarding schools, announces a major fundraising campaign to award up to 200 additional low-income students with future scholarships and tuition assistance to attend school at its rural Mississippi campus. 

Founded in 1909, The Piney Woods School offers a transformative education and dynamic learning environment that integrates lessons within and beyond classroom walls. The campus includes a 200-acre organic demonstration farm, historic original log cabin schoolhouse and museum documenting the school’s rich history. 

The Piney Woods School is guided by Christian principles, but open to students of all faiths. Every student contributes through work study programs, community service and daily or weekly chores to help sustain the organic farm.

“We firmly believe that students – even those of limited financial means – can do extraordinary things, consistent with the opportunities that we make available to them,” says Piney Woods School President Will Crossley. “No student should be denied a Piney Woods education because of a family’s limited financial circumstances.”
