As both Founder and Head of the IMG Academy Department of Academics, I am delighted to welcome you and provide a brief introduction to the school: a private, coeducational institution for grades PK-12 and postgraduates that is located on the 500-acre campus of the IMG Academy.
The history of IMG is rich in scholarship, leadership, and the support of elite athleticism. We are a school specifically designed to meet the needs of the young people who have a passion for sports and who want to receive individualized, academic preparation for university. Our faculty and staff promote an appreciation for diversity in our community as an integral part of school life and a sense of responsibility toward others both within the school and within the IMG community at large.
Our curriculum is college preparatory. Its delivery is varied to keep students engaged and to help ensure higher academic performance. This is accomplished by a dedicated, highly qualified faculty teaching traditional course offerings, including Honors and Advanced Placement courses, within a program specifically designed to cater to the needs of a variety of learners with diverse learning styles. Additional programs such as our English Language Learners program, our Learning Resource Center program, our SAT Prep class program, which is required programming for Sophomores and Juniors, and our teacher-led Evening Directed Learning program are designed to serve the learning needs and achievement goals of all of our students. Further support for our students is provided through our faculty-student advising program, with small groups of students assigned to individual teachers and meeting during regularly scheduled periods several times each week. Our College Planning and Placement Center is hugely successful and works closely with our student athletes’ coaches to ensure that each student athlete receives comprehensive guidance in identifying, communicating with, and applying to the colleges and universities where they will continue their academic and athletic pursuits.
It is my hope that our website conveys the warmth and enthusiasm of our incredible community of students, teachers, staff, parents, and alumni and the unique learning environment that IMG is so proud to offer. If you find the time to visit campus, you will discover more than 600 students who recognize that pursuing an athletic passion does not preclude high academic achievement and personal growth.
