What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
It is a Christian school, meaning there are morals and rules the school requires you to follow: chapel hours, community service, and rules about public display of affection such as lights in a room must be on and there are curfews. If you can't handle the rules, then don't come.
Danielle from Howey IN The Hills, FL
Live in Baxter Residence Hall if you are a girl.
Caitlin from West Palm Beach, FL
Don't be scared, everyone is EXTREMELY nice and EXTREMELY helpful, ask every question you need and make sure you apply online.. it's free and simple. once accepted make sure you get the deposit in to secure your spot, i got in early and i received housing information sooner! :)
Brittany from Saint Cloud, FL
Go into this school with an open mind and heart, people are so nice and helpful. You'll have a great time!
Kristina from Ocala, FL
Don't let the Christianity scare you. You do not have to be a Christian to come here, but they certainly do help you find God within different task. It helps you to become a level headed person and smart at decision making. People are always here to listen or help, and whenever your faith gets low a little song will do you well. If you want to be successful, PBA is definitely the place to be. Hands down, touch down, this is the greatest experience of a lifetime. It's not the traditional way of a college experience, but it is one of the best.
Aleia-Lauren from Goose Creek, SC
Visit the campus if you can, and take the time to talk to some of the students (preferably in your major). Sit in on a class. You'll get a much better idea of whether PBA is right for you. I was set against coming here until my dad persuaded me to go to an open house. Now I'm glad I came.
Student from West Palm Beach, FL
If you are capable of working in the computer without getting distracted very easily it will be easy for you to stay on task on pbaonline.net. This campus is small, meaning that it is a very amicable ambient.
Francis from West Palm Beach, FL
Apply for as many scholarships as you can and the college doesn't even end up being that expensive.
Justin from Royal Palm Beach, FL
if you like parties and drinking, it is not for you. but if you like a calm atmosphere who enjoys the outdoors while still being in the city, you will love it.

I recommend getting involved with on campus activities. This helps you get connected quickly with students that have similar interests as you. Don't be afraid to get to know the upperclassmen; they can really help you get connected, too!
