You know what you want in a college experience. A university that offers more than just a degree. Learning that takes you out of the classroom and into the real world. Professors who know you and help ensure a solid foundation for your life. This is the kind of experience that will impact you, and the world, for life.
Living and learning in West Palm Beach, Florida is an experience like no other.

We infuse a Christian world view into all aspects of the PBA experience—from extracurricular opportunities, to annual spiritual events and activities, to worship in the beautiful DeSantis Family Chapel, to integrating Biblical concepts into the academic curriculum, to student-led Bible study happening across our campus every day.
We are consistently recognized among the top universities in the region by respected authorities like Princetonreview.com, and you’ll find state-of-the-art facilities, technology and resources at places like Warren Library and the Rinker Athletic Campus.
Through offerings like our acclaimed Workship program, you will be a force for positive change and impact lives locally, across the country and around the world. In fact, PBA students and faculty have volunteered more than 3.5 million hours to serving others and improving lives.
Our average class size is just 17, and our student-to-faculty ratio is 12:1. This means that, at PBA, you will be a valued individual whose goals, interests, needs and dreams are supported every day by a faculty of dedicated Christian men and women who are acclaimed experts and dedicated teachers.
Few universities in America put as much emphasis on the value of internships and research as PBA. Here, you’ll find connections with world-renowned businesses, companies and organizations that seek out our students for internship opportunities that empower you to develop real-world skills and set yourself apart in the eyes of employers and graduate schools.
PBA’s Sailfish athletic teams are a source of pride for our entire community, competing at the Division II level of intercollegiate athletics. And you can get into the action yourself through our robust intramural programs, many of which take advantage of the elite facilities and resources of the 78-acre Rinker Athletic Campus.
Our more than 40 student clubs and organizations cover a wide range of extracurricular interests—and if you’re interested in something that doesn’t currently have a club, you can create one yourself. These are perfect opportunities to develop critical leadership and teamwork skills, make new friends with shared interests, shape PBA’s campus culture and have fun.
