A Note from the Head of School
Wow! It has been an amazing start to our new school year at Royal Palm Academy. The energy level on campus right now is just AWESOME! There is something special and exciting happening at Royal Palm Academy. We have an invigorated buzz of energy, enthusiasm, and joy permeating throughout our campus, creating excitement about the future of our beloved school. 
Our teachers and staff are energized and excited. I met with our teachers a few weeks ago and explained the needs of our school. I laid out for them my vision for our immediate future: expanded programs, facility improvements, increased access to professional development and technology, and capital investments in our campus. I asked our teachers to join me in demonstrating our belief in our core mission and students by increasing our level of giving to our Kings Campaign Annual Fund.

Our teachers responded with extraordinary charity and thunderous enthusiasm. I am proud to announce that with
100% participation, our teachers and staff have exceeded over $12,000 in total pledges for the 2021-2022 school year! This is a 1,000% giving level increase from last year, surpassing the highest giving level of teachers in school history.

But our teachers can’t do it alone.
Will you consider making a gift to this year’s Royal Palm Academy Annual Fund? A gift of any size makes a tremendous difference! I ask that you consider joining one of our Kings Campaign Giving Circles with one-time or monthly pledge to our campaign. Your donation makes our school mission possible and provides our students with the BEST Catholic education available in Naples.  

Our Annual Fund enables the school to invest in the future of our campus with necessary capital investments in technology, STEM programs, facility upgrades and expanded athletic opportunities. Most importantly, all contributions to our Annual Fund enable an affordable Catholic education for over 62 students who otherwise could not afford Royal Palm Academy.

Semper Altius!
