If your son or daughter loves the sports that we offer, they want to compete both on the field and in the classroom, and grow as a person, I can’t think of a better place to be than here. – Chris Locke, IMG Academy Head of School
Even with the recent expansion of the Academic Center, IMG Academy intentionally maintains small, intimate class sizes with passionate educators who support the balance of a rigorous academic and athletic schedule. The approximately 100,000 sq. ft. facility provides student-athletes, faculty, campers, and adult guests with the latest in technology and curriculum expansion, such as collaborative, hands-on work areas, a fully functional broadcast production studio, computer labs, a complete English Language Center, and more.
To continue as an industry leader means to continue to evolve, learn, and grow as both an athletic and academic institution. The challenge of successfully balancing student, sport, and social responsibilities are part of what elevates IMG student-athletes against their competition when transitioning to the collegiate level. The Academic Center addition is just one example of IMG Academy's demonstrated commitment to high-level academics for our growing student body and on-campus visitors.
