Applying for seventh through eleventh grade admission to Palma School is an easy four-step process You will need:
Your son will be considered for admission once we receive these materials.
Applicants will need to take the SSAT, Palma’s admissions test. The SSAT at home is the same standardized test as the SSAT but delivered via computer rather than on paper at a test center. It is offered every Saturday and some Sundays each month. The test is administered via a secure web application with continuous AI monitoring, data forensics, and live remote proctoring. It is about the same length as the in-person SSAT.
Grades and test scores don’t tell us the whole story of your son; character and personal growth are also an integral part of a Palma School education. Along with the SSAT, all applicants to Palma School are required to take The Character Skills Snapshot, which gives us richer holistic information and illuminates areas where Palma School can help your son grow and thrive. For students who take the SSAT, there is no charge to take the Snapshot. Once you register for an SSAT, you will also have access to the Snapshot.
Lastly, deliver the Teachers’ Recommendations and Release of School Records forms to your son’s school. These forms can be downloaded using the links on the right, from the online application site or can be picked up at the school office. The forms will also be available at our open house. There are two recommendation forms: one goes to your son’s current English teacher and the second goes to his current Math teacher. Please include envelopes with Palma’s address so the teachers can mail the forms to us. The Release of School Records form should be given to your son’s school’s front office so they may send a current transcript and test scores directly to us. Be assured that we will keep the information contained in all of these forms confidential.
