About PBIA

Palm Beach International Academy (PBIA) is at the forefront of 21st Century Education.

Today’s student must be a creative problem solver who understands how to communicate and collaborate across many disciplines. Our programs promote these skills and more.

We create personalized and accredited academic plans to fit the unique interests and lifestyles of each student. From K-12, to undergraduate and graduate studies, our students become lifelong learners.

Students work one-on-one or in small groups with educators who present the material in innovative and exciting ways. Our students learn to be leaders and to contribute to our global community.

Students study at one of our centers or remote locations, as well as via real-time video conferencing while traveling, living abroad or at home. The choices are endless!

A Note from the Founding and Executive Director

Since 1989, our students have been teaching us how they needed to learn, what they were interested in studying, where they wanted to work, and who their best teachers were. The result has been PBIA, Palm Beach International Academy.

From athletes to activists, to performers and philosophers, our students and educators represent the best hope for our future. They hail from all over the planet, and all share the common goal of becoming the best they can be while making the world a better place for everyone.

Each one of us at PBIA is honored to be a part of the shift that is occurring in education. Join us in celebrating the future that we all continue to dream about!
