About

Head's Corner

Welcome to Palmer Trinity School.

Established in 1972, Palmer Trinity School offers a unique independent school experience that provides both a challenging and supportive environment for more than 770 students.

Palmer Trinity has a diverse population, and is friendly and welcoming. We provide students with a stimulating and extensive academic program, a wide range of extracurricular activities, and weekly Chapel services, embracing the Episcopal tradition of nurturing individual talents, not only for personal gain, but also in service to others. To foster this development, we have a myriad of community service opportunities to participate in and a nationally recognized global citizenship program.

We believe our success can be seen in students who have a foundation laid with core values that will serve them well in life, as well as a global awareness of the world in which they will engage. Character development, responsible decision-making, and the appropriate balance of mind, body, and spirit are what we strive to encourage, develop, and maintain.

Our talented faculty and staff serve as role models, advisors, and mentors, impacting our students’ lives, in and out of the classroom, and beyond graduation.

As Head of School, please allow me to extend a warm invitation to experience firsthand the unique spirit that is Palmer Trinity School, where the power of humanity and spirit unite, Virtus. Humanitas. Spiritus.

Thank you for visiting our website, and for considering Palmer Trinity School in your educational plans.

Go Falcons!

I absolutely believe that any time of crisis brings with it the opportunity to grow, become stronger, and, ultimately, better, as a Community.
