Activities & Campus Life

This is our home

Within our campus, student-athletes are consistently challenged to achieve goals far beyond their own aspirations while simultaneously supported to explore their passions and interests while gaining skills that translate to all facets of life. Outside of school and sport, individuals feel comfortable and confident on campus, regardless of their age or background.

On-Campus Activities

IMG Academy student-athletes have the opportunity to attend a variety of events in addition to annual prom and homecoming dances. Journey through global cuisines with food fairs, explore cultural traditions at dance and music festivals, play games at on-site carnival and arcade nights, or simply settle in and socialize at our recreational area outside the residence halls. IMG Academy's campus life activities are age-appropriate and are chosen to provoke new memories, broaden cultural experiences, and create lasting memories as a community.

After Hours at IMG Academy

Unwavering Support Around the Clock

The IMG Academy Student Life staff and Residential Mentors oversee our student-athletes, providing them with a familiar resource outside of their sport coaches and academic teachers. This group of mentors understand the challenges that come with being a young adult, especially within a boarding school environment, and they're solely focused on creating a welcoming environment that's both inclusive and supportive. While they manage and develop student-athletes' daily activities and events, they are truly the backbone of student life, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of each student-athlete.
