Palm Beach Atlantic University is unlike anywhere else: our oceanside location, our top-tier academics, our allegiance to Christ. It’s an amazing place to be a scholar. And once you’re a part of this community, you’ll never fully leave: PBA graduates take their Sailfish legacy with them as they change the world.
From our humble beginnings to our powerful present, PBA empowers students to tackle the problems of their day with godly character, open arms and a servant’s heart.
The University's leadership is composed of strong, compassionate and visionary leaders of integrity in policy and planning, strategic communications and marketing, and administrative and financial operations.
Student demographics, academic distinctives, honors and accolades, and community impact tell some of the story of who we are.
It’s not a purpose that you choose for yourself, but something greater. It’s bigger than success or accomplishment and more important than personal happiness. It’s a purpose that God designed for you. It’s the life you were always meant to live.
We believe you were chosen. For a specific calling, for a certain place, for this very moment. And at PBA, you’ll learn how to live out that purpose. Our Christian community isn’t simply kind, it’s empowering. Our world-class academics aren’t merely powerful, they’re purposeful. Our highly-ranked programs, Centers for Excellence, and top-tier professors aren’t only energizing, they’re inspiring.
Everything we do is designed to ensure you become everything you are. Because you were chosen by God to explore. To be brave. To become.
At PBA, you’ll be well-prepared for a successful career. But you’ll do more than that here. You’ll also deepen your character, enliven your faith, discover more of God’s world, and develop life-long friendships. All of this makes PBA special—and allows you to feel ready to take your next step.
PBA students go places: elite graduate programs, Fortune-500 companies, top hospitals, and more. They change lives as teachers, pastors, and nonprofit leaders.
Work + Worship = Workship. PBA’s unique community service program shapes the lives of our students and brings light and hope to our community.
Hands-on learning and heartfelt service around the world teach PBA students to be learners and leaders.
