Financial Aid

Palm Valley School seeks to attract highly-qualified students and supportive families to join our school community. We are committed to ensuring that any child who qualifies for admission not be denied the opportunity to attend our school due to demonstrated financial need.

To the end, the Palm Valley School awards nearly $1 Million annually to qualified students who wish to attend our school. We employ the Financial Aid model for all students who apply and qualify. Students with demonstrated financial need pay a tuition price that fits your family’s ability to pay. 40-45% of our current student body receive financial assistance in some form. Additionally, we offer a variety of financed payment plans to accommodate families who wish to make monthly payments over a 10 month period.

Inquiries concerning the Financial Aid can be addressed to the Director of Admissions and Marketing by calling 760-328-0861 or sending an email to
