Vice President and Head of School at IMG Academy, Chris Locke, explains three things that student-athletes interested in attending IMG Academy should be prepared for, that makes the school so unique.
With student-athletes from all 50 states and over 80 different countries around the world, IMG Academy is one of the most diverse schools in the nation. This diversity creates an inspiring environment that promotes understanding and learning of new cultures, and helps students make lifelong friends from all around the world.
Students should also be prepared to compete on a daily basis. At IMG Academy, there is competition in the classroom for academic success, and on the field, court and track as student-athletes seek to improve athletically.
Lastly, IMG Academy is the closest student-athletes can get to experiencing what being a collegiate student-athlete is like. Student-athletes should be prepared to become more self-reliant, as they will be balancing their homework, studying and travel schedules in an independent environment. This prepares student-athletes to matriculate to universities ready to contribute immediately and compete at the next level.
At IMG Academy, student-athletes are challenged on a daily basis to be better students, athletes, and most importantly, people. If you’re interested in learning more about IMG Academy’s boarding school experience, click here.
