    A National Historic Landmark, Pine Mountain Settlement School was founded in 1913 as a boarding school for mountain children and as a settlement serving the community through economic, health and cultural initiatives.

    The school's programs have evolved to meet the changing needs of the community and region. Today's programs include environmental education and basic educational support for students in local schools. The richness of Pine Mountain Settlement School's campus and its history is a source for multiple other enrichment programs for the local community and beyond.

    The campus is located on 625 acres on the north side of Pine Mountain, the most imposing geological feature of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The wooded slopes of Pine Mountain's property are home to an impressive number of plants and animals, some of which are exclusive to the campus.


    Facilities including hiking trails are not open at-large to the public. Activities at the Settlement School must be scheduled with the staff. Please see the school's website and event schedule for more information.
