IMG Academy Methodology Wheel

Tomorrow's leaders learn here.

The Emerging Future

For student-athletes to thrive in 21st century college classrooms and beyond, they must be equipped with a skill set that embodies the mandates of a changing world. IMG Academy employs best practices that reflect current effective learning research through the strategic integration of information literacy and an instruction and curriculum plan that dictates the inclusion of complex, rigorous thinking tasks.

Additionally, myriad opportunities are provided for learners to engage collaboratively with peers in classrooms where teachers serve as a “guide on the side” rather than a “sage on the stage”. Support for this effort comes in the form of small class sizes, an accomplished and dedicated faculty, and a wide range of relevant, NCAA approved course offerings. IMG leads the way in terms of its resolve to launch literate, information-age graduates into prestigious higher education programs throughout the world.
