Why Give to PVS?

A Tradition of Giving

Walk anywhere on campus and virtually everything you can see has been a gift to the school. Independent Schools deliver top-quality education to our tight-knit community, but we do not receive any funding from government or religious institutions. Every building, play area, field and sidewalk is the result of the generosity of previous members of the Palm Valley Community. Today’s educational opportunities are the result of yesterday’s determined families.

There have been a few families capable of large donations, but over the last 65 years it is the pyramid effect of many, many families helping in their own way that has made the biggest difference. Each family plays a role in the success of the school.
Palm Valley Private School occupies 34 acres in Rancho Mirage with stunning mountain views. The campus features separate campuses and buildings for each of our four divisions – Preschool (ages 18 months to 5), Elementary (Grades K-5), Middle School (Grades 6-8), and High School (Grades 9-12), along with a full-size gymnasium, several separate recesses and athletic fields, a black box theater and smart lab.
