Tuition & Financial Aid

Every effort is made to keep tuition affordable within our local economy which makes Palma an unequaled value. A distinct advantage is our tuition lock-in. Tuition rates are guaranteed to stay the same throughout both years of Junior High and/or all four years of High School. Siblings of an enrolled student will appreciate a 20% discount while concurrently enrolled. Tuition can be paid in full, per semester or monthly and includes most of the fees.
