Perhaps more than any century before, the 21st Century is poised to change our way of life in its entirety. Already, it is transforming the way we communicate, govern, innovate, and learn. In education, the past decade has seen numerous benefits and challenges emerging from technology.
Palma’s rich tradition and commitment to the education of the whole person includes providing a 21st Century education with access to the most advanced technology and learning resources. At Palma, we have embraced this new era as we prepare our students for success in college and beyond.
Acceptable Devices at Palma School The following iPad models meet the baseline requirements at Palma. Newer models are always recommended, but not required:
iPad (2017 or later), iPad Air (2019 or later), iPad Pro (2017 or later)
Recommended minimum hard drive space: 64GB
The iPad mini is not recommended due to poor performance with older models and small screen size.
iPad Program Palma chose iPads because they’re high quality, ultra-portable, versatile devices with an easy learning curve. iPads strike a balance between cost, performance, battery life, and flexibility that makes them an ideal fit for Palma. Devices must support a myriad of functions both in and out of the classroom; email correspondence, eBook reading, internet research, testing, and more. iPads are essential to what we do in the classroom, on the field, and at home.
New Students may bring an iPad already owned or purchase a new one.
Returning Students may keep using their current iPad or purchase a new one.

Mindful of our primary mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, Palma School admits students of any race, color, national and/or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at the school. Palma School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and/or ethnic origin, nor age in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. While Palma School does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not be available. Likewise, Palma School does not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of gender, age, disability, race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin. Palma School reserves the right to be a sole judge of merit, competence and qualifications, and can favor Catholic applicants and co-workers in all employment decisions, especially in those positions that have direct bearing upon the pastoral activity of the Church.
