IMG Academy is proud to call Bradenton, Florida our home. This is where we started many decades ago, and it’s been incredible to watch the area grow with us.
Today, the Bradenton Area is a thriving community that combines its ideal location, gorgeous weather, active lifestyle and well-planned infrastructure to create a truly special community. Situated on Florida’s southwest Gulf Coast, one hour south of Tampa, the Bradenton Area offers award-winning island communities like Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key, as well as Lakewood Ranch, one of the country’s top-ten, best-selling, master-planned communities. Downtown Sarasota, located 15 minutes south, offers lots of shopping, dining and entertainment, with over 10 theaters and 30 art galleries, and a number of events hosted throughout the year.
The 27 miles of beaches along Bradenton’s barrier islands and 150 miles of waterfront along rivers and bays create plenty of opportunities for recreational activities. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, there is no better place to work and play.
