WHAT:   The Piney Woods School, one of America’s oldest independent, historically black boarding schools, is partnering with the Woodson Center  for a virtual fundraising event that will enable the school to provide scholarships and tuition assistance to up to 200 low-income students.

Piney Woods School currently cannot financially support all students who qualify for acceptance into its programs and thus serves only 100 students in a space that can accommodate 300. Black American Values in Action: A Virtual Fundraiser for The Piney Woods School will help Piney Woods provide even more deserving students with a rigorous college preparatory education.  Woodson Center and its partners will provide 100 percent in matching funds for all donations up to 500K..

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.
