Admissions

WELCOME TO PALM VALLEY SCHOOL!

You've happened upon a very special place - a true community. This is a place where teachers know not only your child's name, but his goals and talents as well. Here, the real-world skill of communicating effectively - both verbally and in writing - is not only valued but is taught, at every age, to every child.  Here, children are allowed to explore new interests and talents - in sports, in drama, in music - without worrying about not being good enough to make the team or get the role before they start.

We feature a college-preparatory curriculum, from the early years on.  This means that we value learning, curiosity, and critical thinking - as well as their basic building blocks: reading, writing, and mathematics. 100% of our graduates qualify for 4-year colleges each year, with an average SAT score more than 250 points higher than the national average. More important, when they get to the colleges of their choice, they find themselves well-prepared for the academic challenges that await.

At Palm Valley, we know that a true education is more than academics - it is a preparation for life itself.  Therefore, we focus on character development at all levels of the school - from discussions of courage, respect, and responsibility in the Lower School to a meaningful community service program in the Upper School

We would love to meet you and show you around our beautiful campus.  During these unique circumstances with COVID-19, please schedule a video conference with our Director of Admissions, Abby Sturgeon at asturgeon@pvs.org  or contact us online to arrange a tour for a later date, and to meet the students, teachers, parents, and administrators at the heart of our special community.
