There’s an energy, environment and community at PBA unlike any other college or university in America. Our people are guided by their Christian values. Our academic offerings are proven and respected by top employers and elite graduate institutions. And our setting in the heart of West Palm Beach brings boundless academic, entertainment, recreational and professional opportunities.

The only thing that would make our community even better, is you.

Unleash Your Potential
Our undergraduate, graduate and professional programs are ranked and respected. The Frederick M. Supper Honors Program offers distinctive, elevated learning opportunities. Our six Centers of Excellence will deepen your knowledge and skills. Our faculty of top-tier scholars will know you, your hopes and your dreams. All of this combines to form an academic experience that will prepare you to lead at the highest levels.

Anchored in Faith
The Christian world view that permeates our campus, community and culture adds a unique dimension to the PBA learning experience. From its presence in the academic curriculum, to weekly chapel to service learning and mission trips, this faith-based foundation will shape your experience and prepare you with the kind of ethical, principled outlook that today’s employers value.

South Florida Horizons
Living and learning in West Palm Beach, you’ll be surrounded by the unparalleled opportunities of South Florida.

  • Intern at a Fortune 500 company, in the vibrant financial and wealth district or with an innovative start-up
  • Conduct research at elite centers like the Scripps Research Institute
  • Gather with friends along the 50 miles of pristine beaches just minutes from campus
  • Play a round of golf at any of the area’s more than 160 golf courses
  • Catch the pro sports action of the NFL’s Dolphins, NBA’s Heat, MLB’s Marlins and NHL’s Panthers
  • Take in a concert at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
  • Shop, be entertained and enjoy dinner at Rosemary Square
  • Enjoy the outdoors at the Everglades, Lake Trail or MacArthur Beach State Park
  • Create Positive Change
    Through PBA’s unique Workship Program, you’ll be able to improve communities and lives down the street, around South Florida or in countries across the globe. Help build homes for those in need. Assist with natural disaster recovery efforts. Tutor and mentor youngsters in after school programs. And pack meals for families living in underserved communities. To date, PBA students have volunteered 3.3 million hours of service through Workship.

 

Expanding Possibilities
Our graduates are consistently accepted into elite graduate programs at schools such as Cambridge, Northwestern and Vanderbilt. They far surpass state and national averages on professional certification exams. And they’re sought after by some of the world’s most respected organizations, with names like Ernst & Young, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and the Central Intelligence Agency.

A recent (2021) graduate in elementary education has won a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) award to Taiwan for the 2021-22 academic year. This is PBA’s second Fulbright Award winner to Taiwan, and the fourth year in a row that a PBA student has earned the prestigious Fulbright ETA.
