IMG Academy's Post-Grad University Year is partnered with the University of South Florida (USF) to enhance each student-athlete's overall academic profile and athletic ability without hindering NCAA eligibility. Small class sizes help demonstrate communication and expectations of college-level professors in a supportive environment. Enrollment in the university year program includes subject-specific tutors through IMG Academy, bi-monthly meetings with a post-graduate coordinator and college advisor in addition to SAT/ACT preparations. The Post-Graduate High School Year option offers honors and AP coursework, SAT/ACT support, and a rigorous athletic schedule for student-athletes looking to improve their academic profile while continuing athletic development before enrolling in college.
