Welcome to Royal Palm Academy

Located in the heart of Naples, Florida, Royal Palm Academy is an independent Catholic school for pre-kindergarten to eighth-grade children. We provide a family environment where we want to get to know not only your child but your family, so we can work together to ensure that each student successfully reaches their full potential. By working closely with families, we have a genuine collaboration that provides a solid foundation for growth and development.

Our purpose at Royal Palm Academy is to prepare every child that comes through our doors for the world around us. We touch the hearts and minds of our students by providing them with a higher standard of education in a nurturing atmosphere with experienced professionals dedicated to seeing them succeed. Each child receives the individual attention they need so they can grow intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally. This focus empowers our students to have self-confidence in their knowledge, faith, and morality.
