Thank you for your interest in supporting Palma
School and its mission.
60 years ago, Palma opened its doors to the young men and
women of the Salinas Valley. Much has changed in the six decades since the
first students arrived on campus. Palma has grown from its very first
graduating class of just 23 students, to the 111 promising young men that
received diplomas in 2010. Though Palma has gone through many changes over the
decades, the mission with which this school was founded remains steadfast.
Palma provides an academic environment rich in diversity and strong traditional
values, combining Proven Academics, Positive Values, and Perpetual Pride to
create the best possible learning environment for the young men of our
As a tuition driven school, Palma is not eligible for government or diocesan aid of any kind, and we rely on the generosity of those who recognize the special place this school has in the community. Whether it is through a gift to The Palma Fund, a donation of goods, services, or your own time, you will join a 60-year tradition of continuous support for the education of young men who represent the best our community has to offer in their intellectual curiosity, their commitment to education, and their compassion as individuals.
Blessed Edmund Rice was devoted to the education of young
men like those who attend Palma, and along with the faculty, staff, and
coaches, we in the Advancement Office are committed to providing the best
environment possible to enhance each student’s educational experience, but we
cannot do it alone, we are dependent on members of our community who understand
that a donation is an investment in the future of each and every young man that
passes through our doors.
