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 750 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!

  • Your Adventure Awaits

    One of my favorite memories would occur just as Summer arrived each year. Being a meticulous planner, my father would drive a couple of miles to the local AAA office in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. There, Dad would procure the various maps and travel guidebooks for our annual summer trip. Oftentimes, my brothers, Ken, Steve and I would tag along, and sometimes Dad would go on his own, but he always would return home excited and eager to begin plotting our course and setting the plan of action.

    Upon his return home, our entire family would gather around our rickety old kitchen table...There, the maps would be unfurled and our adventure would literally begin.

  • Welcome back...almost!

    I know it's hard to believe, but the opening of the 2017-18 academic year is upon us. This year marks our 45th anniversary and promises to be a great one. Hopefully, you have enjoyed a relaxing summer and a good moment or two to disconnect from School. For us, it has been a busy and productive nine weeks.
    As we begin the month of August and prepare for Opening Day on Wednesday, August 16th, I share just a few noteworthy highlights and say thank you to all of our Staff for the good work accomplished this summer.

  • Congratulations, Class of 2017

    As we gather to celebrate you today, please know that I recognize the simple fact that I am the only one standing between you and those doors, leading you to your next adventure...I promise to be brief, and I say “thank you” for this opportunity...Although, I must confess, it is awfully difficult to speak after the wonderful tradition we just witnessed---the sharing of “thank you” notes…

    However, I will “press on”...

    If you recall, I was asked to speak to your class a few months ago, and offer a few “tips” for your college planning, and next steps after Graduation. In those brief 10 minutes, I shared with you 5 simple points, or pieces of personal advice that I hoped would resonate with you. Recognizing that it was early in the day, early in the semester, and, to be quite frank, early in the stages of “Senior Slide”, I would like to share with you today those 5 thoughts again---this time, with a few visuals, a little more formally, and in greater detail. Please remember these are my own observations, and based only on a relatively short life span of 47 years...
