A Parent’s View

“I can’t imagine a better, more caring school environment, not in Florida, not in New York City. Our son has been prepared not only for the best prep schools, but to go out into the world as a caring, well-informed teenager. Something of a rarity these days, no?” – James Patterson, parents of PBDA alumnus, “New York Times” best-selling author and sponsor of Masters Program for PBDA teachers

“While always staying true to its enduring purpose and core values, PBDA is a school thoroughly aware that it is preparing students to lead healthy, engaged lives in the increasingly connected and rapidly evolving 21st century.” – John Thornton, parent and Chairman of Barrick Gold Corporation; Director of Global Leadership at Tsinghua University in Beijing

“The 97-year history of Palm Beach Day Academy is the legacy that creates the roots that strengthen our community as the children grow and then return.” – Gail Coniglio, parent and grandparent of PBDA alumni and mayor of Palm Beach since 2011

“The faculty and staff are quite caring and nurturing.” – Charles Schumacher, parent of PBDA student

“My husband’s entire family has gone through PBDA, and they had great experiences here. The traditions that go on at Palm Beach Day are really important to carry on in a family.” – Lourdes Fanjul, parent of PBDA student and alumna, and wife of PBDA alumnus

“There’s no question in my mind that Palm Beach Day Academy has changed the trajectory of my children’s lives. It’s just a fact.” – Amy Middleton, parent of PBDA student and alumna
