Student Life

Student Organizations

At Palmer Trinity School, extracurricular activities enriches students’ lives by giving them opportunities to pursue or develop interests, skills, and friends.
In many cases, these activities supplement the academic program. Palmer Trinity School offers a variety of interesting and meaningful clubs, student government association, service clubs and organizations to meet the interests and abilities of all students, and to sustain the mission of the school.

Clubs should plan to meet at a minimum of once monthly and will have a written, meaningful and measurable goal/s to complete for the school year. An evaluation form will be completed at the end of the School year. An exciting calendar of events is located on the School’s Master Calendar reflecting upcoming activities and events (i.e. Homecoming, days of service, etc.)

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
