I have a site structure that would benefit the option that admins could not delete certain page types from the cms in order to keep the intended functionality. Is this possible?

Put this in your Page model and replace PageType withy your page type.

function canDelete() {
return false;

Also try this one if you don't want them to create any more pages with that type.

function canCreate() {
return !DataObject::get_one("PageType");
