Lower Campus Enrichment

Palm Beach Day Academy offers after-school enrichment opportunities for children who are eager to discover and explore new interests. Our safe and structured environment encourages students to feel empowered to try new things while building their confidence and teamwork skills.

Lower Campus Enrichment classes are typically 45 minutes to an hour in length, held between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Many classes are taught by PBDA teachers; however, select classes incorporate external instructors (golf/tennis at The Breakers, karate, etc.). While most classes take place on the Lower Campus, some are held on the Upper Campus or off-site.

Linda Merman, Director of Aftercare and Enrichment, will oversee all Enrichment Programs. Please reach out to her via email with any questions you may have.
