School Updates

The middle school bell schedule is ready to be viewed here.

Please make sure to take a look at our updated travel routes and travel route communication for important information before school starts.

Dear PVA Families,

Your front office team has officially moved to our new school home!  We will begin accepting new registrations at Palm Valley Academy on Tuesday, July 17th.  Please note:  Our school is still a very active construction site.  It is not open to visitors to look around or tour the area.  We are asking that the only people who come to the school location are those that need to register or those that have a scheduled appointment with the school.  Please refrain from visiting the school site after hours or on the weekend.

Both access roads to the school should now be open.   For future reference, parents/guardians and the public will access the school using the Valley Ridge Boulevard/Town Center entrance.  Staff and school buses will utilize the access road near the Gate Gas Station and Davis Park (Palm Valley Road).

Also, for your reference, our official address is changing from 2135 Palm Valley Road to 700 Bobcat Lane.  The city (Ponte Vedra) and zip code (32081) will remain the same.

  • The main line to contact the school is 904-547-4201.
  • Our summer office hours are Monday- Friday, 7:30 am – 3:30 pm
  • No appointments are necessary for registration.   Registrations will be accepted Monday-Friday, from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

My next communication will include information on travel routes to school, the Back to School Bash, and Orientation.

We look forward to seeing all of our students and families in a few short weeks.  Keep enjoying summer and until next time, be well.

Jessica Richardson- Principal

Summer Learning Opportunities

All students are encouraged to participate in our Summer Reading Program. Students will record the book titles, dates, and the number of minutes read each week on the attached reading log. Students may also complete the Summer Reading Bingo Activity. The (K-2) goal is to read 15 minutes a day and the (3-6) goal is to read 30 minutes a day throughout the summer. The program will start May 29th and end August 8th. Students who turn in their reading logs and/or Bingo cards to the library between August 10th and August 15th will be entered into a raffle for prizes. Multiple students at each grade level will have the opportunity to earn prizes for their Summer Reading Logs.

Attendance Zoning

St. Johns County School District conducted an intensive process of community collaboration, that began with three Town Hall Meetings in September of 2017. After much community input and the development of multiple plans, the School Board approved the attendance zones for K-8 Schools KK and LL on November 14th.

View the 2018-2019 Attendance Zoning For School “KK”.

Palm Valley Academy is scheduled to open for grades K-6. Students, who were rezoned, but are going into grades 7 and 8 will continue to attend their current school. Please see the following information on Grandfathering.
