Logos and Branding

pine lake prep logo

Logo design by Katherine Kwiatkowski

The academic logo was redesigned in 2016, and retains the shape of the circle as we are on Yellow Wood Circle; which comes from "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost.

The three pine trees represent the 3 schools, Lower, Middle, and Upper; and our students at different stages of development;

  • The smallest one on the left represents the Lower School; it is smaller and has fewer boughs than the others, as it is a younger tree; it is firmly placed in the center of the path as it begins its journey here at PLP.
  • The Middle School tree is on the right; has a few more boughs as it's a slightly older tree and progressing farther along the path; it is mostly on the path, however, one of its roots is beginning to reach off the path. 
  • The Upper School tree is the center tree; a more "mature" tree with bigger boughs; it is off the path, as this tree (student) is ready to start its own journey.

The trail shows a progression through the three schools.

*The gear represents our dedication to STEM, yet it's subtle since it is not our only path.

The ribbon on either side (Est. 2006) represents the ribbon on a diploma; the ribbons also "open" to show the story inside, much like a curtain opens on a stage.
