Founded in 1951 in the rich educational tradition of the
Christian Brothers, Palma School is an all-boys, Catholic, college preparatory
institution located in the heart of the Salinas Valley.
For over 60 years Palma School has been committed to educating the young men in its community; however, Palma’s history really began over two centuries ago in Ireland, with
the life of Christian Brother's founder Edmund Rice. A man gifted with a
deep sense of empathy and a great passion for the power of education, Edmund
Rice believed that dedication to academics as well as commitment to the
compassionate care of others were the keys to success and happiness.
200 years later and thousands of miles away, Palma School
holds the simple mission of Blessed Edmund Rice close to its heart. We seek to
educate the whole child, caring for him spiritually, intellectually, morally
physically and socially, so that he may leave us committed to the pursuit of a
lifelong education and with an ardent responsibility to himself, his community,
