"In recognition of the quality of Catholic education at your school and your dedication to the students, WCEA is pleased to present you with a certificate of accreditation. May God continue to bless your school community" is, in part, how the letter from the Western Catholic Educational Association read upon informing Palma School that we earned another six years of accreditation. WCEA visited Palma in March 2019 to conduct their examination of our school, faculty, staff and community. The result is another six-year accreditation from the organization, the highest awarded a school.
Palma is a private, college-preparatory school for boys in grades 7 through 12 owned and operated by the Christian Brothers Institute of California. Palma School is dedicated to providing young men an excellent education in a Roman Catholic environment that embraces the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education and challenges each individual to develop spiritually, intellectually, morally, physically, and socially.
