From Palma School

A campus culture of inclusivity is fostered by team building retreats at every grade level. Meaningful service, from tutoring at local grade schools to a prison program that changes the lives of both students and inmates, allows young men to grow in character and compassion, making them effective leaders.

Catholic tradition provides that every student and their families are welcomed and valued regardless of their origin, heritage or faith. Creating a spiritual foothold provides an advantageous position for a student to propel upward and forward.

With all that Palma School offers, it’s no wonder that Chieftains matriculate to some of the best colleges and universities in the country and excel in both academics and sports at the collegiate level.
