  • Student Government Association (SGA)

    Student Government at Palmer Trinity School consists of an Upper School Student Council and the Honor Council. Student Council representatives are elected annually. Class presidents are elected annually. Students electing to run for school office must have their advisor and the Deans' Office sign their candidacy petition indicating their support for the student. Students whose disciplinary records are inappropriate may, therefore, be disqualified from serving as class officers.

  • Honor Societies

    Honor societies include the following: Chinese National Honor Society, International Thespian Society, La Sociedad Honoraria Hispanica, Mu Alpha Theta, National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, Societe Honoraire de Francais, and Tri M Music Honor Society. These honor societies include students who have attained distinction in scholarship, leadership, service, and character. A Faculty Selection Committee appoints members. Once appointed, a member is expected to maintain high standards in order to continue as a member. Because this is one of the highest honors a student can achieve at Palmer Trinity School, much is expected of its members.

    For more information regarding joining an Honor Society, download the Eligibility for application to PTS Honor Societies form.
  • Math/Science clubs

    Mu Alpha Theta (math club) and the Science Club are examples of other academic clubs designed to provide forums for the related subjects to those interested students.

    The number and kinds of interest clubs vary from year to year as chartered by the Student Council. Students interested in forming an interest club should contact the Director of Student Activities for organizational information. Some of the interest clubs currently chartered include Anglers Club, Best Buddies Club, Book Club, Breakthrough Miami, Center for Writing, Debate Club, ECO Club, Gaming Club, Haiti Partnership Club, Hope for Tomorrow, Hoop Dreams, Marine Conservancy, Model UN, Peer Educators, Second Chance, Student Alumni Association, Student Vestry, Tabitha Club and Youth in Government. Students are always encouraged to create new academic or interest clubs. They must have a faculty sponsor and have applied for and been granted a charter from the Student Council. Students should contact the director of student activities for organizational information.
  • Student Activities Sponsors

    Each service club, society, academic club, class, and interest club is required to have at least one faculty sponsor to attend each meeting and organization event. The role of that sponsor is to provide responsible guidance at the group’s meetings and in their selection and organization of activities. Groups that are affiliated with organizations from the community (i.e., Lighthouse for the Blind, Habitat for Humanity, CPHI, Branches, etc.) may have additional sponsors or advisors from that parent organization.
  • Publications

    Palmer Trinity School student publications include a yearbook, The Raptor, and literary magazine, Blue Grass Green Sky. Students produce each publication with the assistance of a faculty advisor.
