RPA surpasses our standards of academic excellence as well as Florida's academic standards without a doubt. Coming from great schools up north, I have to say that we would be hard pressed to find a school as sound as RPA if we moved back. The teachers also show genuine love and concern for all of their students. RPA needs the recognition of being an outstanding family centered, academically sound, well-staffed and loving community.

My first encounter with this school was one of warmth, kindness and excellence. They are one big family. The school focuses on building character in children, which is so important. I would recommend this school and hope to be a part of their family for a long time.

Royal Palm Academy has been a glass overflowing with blessings for our children and our family. I can't imagine a stronger partner for a family in providing the values necessary to develop a child's spiritual, academic and leadership character.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
