IMG Academy provides both a challenging and supportive environment that brings out the best in student-athletes. Through small class sizes, an accomplished faculty recognized for teaching excellence, the encouragement of creativity and discussion and one-on-one tutoring availability, IMG Academy has sent student-athletes to some of the highest-performing universities in the nation.
Our students’ accomplishments are as diverse as our student population. Many have earned academic distinction as National Merit Scholars and HP Scholastic All-Americans, among the many national scholastic honor programs. Their remarkable efforts have secured admittance to distinguished universities throughout the world.
At IMG Academy, we believe critical thinking and independent learning skills are crucial preparation for collegiate-level academics. We instill these principles into our core curriculum from the elementary school to our post-grad programs. Our teaching methodologies continually evolve to meet the rigorous demands of modern education.
Our classes offer creative and challenging coursework, low student-to-faculty ratios and assignment schedules built on a philosophy of depth and substance over busy work. Our experienced faculty appreciates the demands of being both a student and an athlete, and they strive to provide a constructive balance between school and sport. For each course, the material and objectives pursued in daily classroom lessons are guided by a variety of standards selected by each academic department, choosing between Florida Sunshine State Standards, Common Core Standards, and National Standards.
Our athletics developed its roots in 1978, when tennis legend Nick Bollettieri created a revolutionary tennis academy that allowed student-athletes to discover their ultimate potential through expert athletic training, and prepared them for success in all aspects of life through a college-preparatory education.
His vision ultimately evolved into IMG Academy, now a world leader in integrated academics, athletics and personal development. Our student-athletes go on to attend some of the world's most prestigious universities and stake their claim as some of the top athletes across the globe.
Today each sport program is developed and managed by a team of expert coaches, former athletes and specialized trainers. Combine our expert staff with a world-class facility and advanced technology, and the result is an athletic institution unmatched by any other.
At IMG Academy, we strive to develop student-athletes who will become the leaders and role models for future generations to come. We believe academics and athletics are only the beginning of training the champions and leaders of tomorrow. Our revolutionary methodology includes mental conditioning, leadership development and life skills to prepare student-athletes for life’s challenges after graduation. Through the teaching of accountability and a strong moral compass, our student-athletes are well prepared for life’s challenges after leaving the campus. Utilizing a revolutionary training curriculum that addresses key areas of peak performance like leadership, confidence, focus and empowerment, IMG Academy instills the mental fortitude that provide an edge to top performers.
We strive to develop student-athletes who are leaders and role models in the community by emphasizing the importance of giving back. Student-athletes are required to commit a set number of hours each academic year to community outreach through organizations like Special Olympics, Boys & Girls Clubs, American Cancer Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters and more.
