Palmetto Bay Academy

Palmetto Bay Academy is in its 18th year as a local Miami educational institution. Founded on the principle that all students can be successful when they are treated as individuals, our proven record of success speaks to the need to move away from the traditional model for many learners.

PBA is a Candidate School for Accreditation with AdvancEd/SACS and is also accredited by the Florida Council of Private Schools.
