Get Involved as a Parent
Palm Beach Day Academy is a true family school.
Parents are welcome on campus, and in classrooms, any day at any time. Their presence is particularly encouraged at Friday flag assemblies and other school events, including our annual Field Day.
PBDA teachers consider PBDA parents to be equal, valued partners in a child’s education, because family involvement not only maintains the high standards of the school, but also provides rewarding experiences for children and parents.
Get Involved at PBDA
Volunteerism is a longstanding tradition at Palm Beach Day Academy, and there is an opportunity for every parent to get involved.

Parent School Council (PSC)
Parents are invited to show their support through participation in PBDA’s Parent School Council. All parents of enrolled students are members, and there are no dues.
