Application Process

In the Admissions Office, our goal is to provide a welcoming face to answer any and all of your questions about our great school. The Admissions process is designed to provide you with insight into the school’s expectations for the family, as well as, to evaluate a student’s skills, achievements, and talents and to determine Palm Valley is the right school for your student and family. We want to ensure that your time here is engaging, positive, and satisfying. Additionally, we want to best understand how we can support the unique needs of every child and family to be successful and to thrive in our community.

Because we strive to maintain small classes for optimal individual attention to each student, space is sometimes limited in a particular grade. Applications for admission will be considered once the parent has submitted sufficient information upon which to make a decision. Applications made during the school year will be considered only if space is available. Application submission does not guarantee admission. Admissions qualifications is determined by academic assessments specific to each grade level and a variety of other factors. Students that need specific academic supports may need to be further assessed by our Learning Specialist to determine if our program and support staff are able to meet their individual needs for success.
