Non-Pandemic Years

Before the pandemic, prospective and incoming new parents were welcome to take a walking campus tour on Visitors Days. As a visitor, you would see the campus on a school day, tour the facilities, visit classrooms, and get a chance to talk to Palms parents and students. Students from Leadership lead the tours.

Children were welcome to take the tours with their parents. Siblings could come along too!

The program began at 9:00am with an orientation in the Auditorium (see campus map) and usually lasted about 75 to 90 minutes, depending on how many questions you had. After the walking tour, refreshments were served in the Library Garden and a question-and-answer session was held in the Auditorium.

No signups were required. Prospective parents, with or without students and other family members, could simply show up on any of those dates.
