The Journey Starts Now 

Admissions Process

We enroll a limited amount of students annually from a large pool of qualified applicants, so we encourage interested student-athletes to submit an application as early as possible. Get started now! 

After submitting a completed application, including academic records and recommendations, we encourage prospective families to schedule a visit to our campus through the student-athlete advisor of their respective sport program. The visit may include a class shadow experience and meetings with admissions staff, coaches and faculty. This visit could be part of a one-week sport camp.

Notification of decision will be sent on the 15th of each month. If offered admission to IMG Academy, a Tuition Enrollment Agreement (TEA) will be sent and must be returned by the date indicated, with the required financial deposit.

Admissions FAQ

  • What does IMG Academy look for in a student-athlete?

    While each IMG Academy sport has different qualifications for participation, all of our sport programs share a common denominator in that athletic performance is not the determining factor in acceptance.
