PBA Perfect For Homeschooled Students
PBA welcomes applications for homeschooled students and recognizes the value each one can bring to the institution. Each year, more than 30 homeschooled students enroll at PBA to learn from outstanding scholars who also happen to be solid men and women of faith. PBA continues that intimate learning environment homeschoolers are accustomed to through our small 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Beyond the classroom, your learning will spill out into the world — through internships, research and study abroad opportunities.
Special Day Just for Homeschooled Students
Each year, PBA hosts a special day just for homeschooled students and their families, which allows them to come to campus and see firsthand just how special our university is. The customized activities within our Homeschool Day demonstrate how students can grow intellectually, socially and spiritually in a wonderful, caring and supportive faith-based community.

PBA is Florida’s top Christian university. That means your education will be Christ-centered. Your professors are more than just your teachers. They’re your mentors and guides throughout your PBA educational journey. Expressing your beliefs and sharing your passion for your faith is always encouraged.
Soul-Fulfilling Community Service
Nothing impacts your life — and impacts the world — like serving God through serving others.
At PBA, we call it “Workship,” a combination of “work” and “worship.” You’ll volunteer 45 hours each year at a nonprofit of your choice to help children, the elderly, the impoverished or those with physical limitations — wherever your heart is led.
You’ll also have the opportunity to see the world — and make an impact — through mission trips to countries including Haiti, Uganda, India and the Philippines.
- PBA offers more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs you can choose from. You’ll learn in a Christ-centered environment from dedicated men and women of faith.
- The Frederick M. Supper Honors Program brings together the books, speeches, music, art, architecture, films and ideas that will initiate you into the “Great Conversation.” You’ll discover its wisdom and thus become a better leader, scholar, Christian, citizen and employee.
- A variety of merit-based scholarships are offered to PBA students, and state scholarships are eligible for residents. Click here for more information.
- The PBA campus is clean and safe — and you’ll love the friendly, urban waterside lifestyle. Some of our residence halls even offer views of the Intracoastal Waterway, Palm Beach and the ocean on the horizon.
- Your safety is our top priority, which is why our Department of Safety and Security offers round-the-clock escorts, 16 emergency call boxes, 24-hour campus patrols, community education, victim assistance and much more.
