Established in 1921 as the first independent school in the state of Florida, Palm Beach Day Academy is proud of its history, its traditions, and its commitment to academic excellence.
At PBDA, our challenging academics are met with personalized instruction. Small class sizes coupled with our dedicated teachers and Student Support Team ensure students receive the individual attention needed to flourish.
Learning extends beyond the walls of the classroom at PBDA. Through our extensive community partnerships, students are exposed to the arts, science, entrepreneurship, and more so they can explore and further develop their passions.
A PBDA education emphasizes the role that balance, an active lifestyle, and a healthy mindset play in a child's life. From participating in a form of movement every single day to tending to our organic gardens, our students are taught to put their health first.
As the unofficial motto at PBDA, kindness is woven into everything we do. PBDA students are taught that kindness is the true secret to success whether in the classroom, in the community, or in nature.
My children are learning from the best teachers, kindest people, and strongest advisors to their education and well-being. I feel so fortunate to know that the core values and traditions that were part of my experience at PBDA are the same that my children have every day.”
