Welcome to Palmer Trinity School. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and consider Palmer Trinity School in your educational plans.

Established in 1972, Palmer Trinity School offers a truly unique independent school experience, ensuring an appropriately challenging and supportive environment for more than 700 students.

Providing a rigorous and extensive academic program, a wide range of extracurricular activities and weekly Chapel services, Palmer Trinity embraces the Episcopal tradition, encouraging each student to nurture his or her talents not only for personal gain, but in service to others. A myriad of community service opportunities abound, and a nationally known global citizenship program help to foster this development.

We believe that our success is measured in the responsible actions of our students, and in that belief we strive to provide the foundation for responsible decision making. Character development is a priority at Palmer Trinity School and we seek to achieve and maintain the appropriate balance of mind, body and spirit in all of our endeavors.

Noted for our small class sizes (average size is 15 students), an increasingly diverse population, and a friendly and welcoming environment, Palmer Trinity School continues to thrive as we begin this forty-second year of providing outstanding independent school education in South Florida. Our distinguished faculty and staff work diligently to provide a highly personal approach, serving as role models, advisors and mentors to our students. Palmer Trinity graduates often comment on this feature of the School, recognizing the incredibly important value of such life-changing bonds that these relationships provide.

While this website attempts to provide a glimpse into the daily life of Palmer Trinity School, it will not capture the full experience that a campus visit might provide. Accordingly, as the newly appointed Head of Palmer Trinity School, let me be the first to extend to you a personal invitation so that you might experience firsthand the unique spirit that is Palmer Trinity School.

Again, thank you for your interest.

Go Falcons!
