Parent Volunteers

Palm Beach Day Academy is a true family school. We consider our parents to be valued partners in each child’s education. Family involvement not only maintains the high standards of our school but also provides rewarding experiences for students and parents alike.

Parent School Council (PSC)


Parents are invited to show their support of PBDA through participation in our Parent School Council (PSC). Volunteerism is a longstanding tradition at Palm Beach Day Academy and each year, there are various opportunities for every parent to get involved.

For additional details on our PSC, please visit the ‘Parent Student Council’ Resource Board in your Bulldog Den.

The mission of the PSC is two-fold: fostering communication among constituents of the school community and serving the school in non-academic functions, which are always family affairs.”
