Palmer Catholic Academy was founded in 1997 to provide our children and our community with a quality education within a loving Catholic environment.
Palmer Catholic Academy of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church provides the foundation for academic excellence in a caring, safe and Christ-centered environment.
Our goal is to motivate each child to develop sound catholic values for future success.
The foundation of our educational program is developmental learning, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
In addition, physical education, secondary language, music, art, computer science, and special events are integrated into the curriculum.
These educational instruments are enhanced by daily religious instruction and prayer intended to strengthen the learning process and give our children a well rounded Catholic Christian education.
