IMG Academy is the world’s premier boarding school for dedicated and passionate student-athletes. Established in 1978 as Bollettieri Tennis Academy, IMG has evolved and expanded to include eight sport programs, professional-grade facilities and technology, and a global atmosphere within an all-inclusive campus.
With a seamless methodology that equally cultivates academic growth, athletic improvement, character development, and social responsibility, IMG creates leaders and influencers who are better prepared than most of their peers to take on the next stages of their lives. Located in Bradenton, FL., IMG is home to the world’s most dedicated student-athletes seeking to reach their full potential. Our alumni and trainees have achieved elite success at the highest levels, and our graduates continue to attend the nation’s most academically and athletically prestigious universities.
As a fully-accredited 6th-12th grade program that also offers a post-graduate program, IMG remains committed to academics and providing student-athletes with the tools they need to succeed. We offer both boarding and non-boarding as well as courses that aid international students and families with their transition process. By learning in an environment that both challenges and supports them, IMG student-athletes acquire the skills of balance and prioritization. They also grow their cultural understanding through interactions with student-athletes from across the United States and more than 80 countries.
Courses are designated as College Preparatory, Honors, and Advanced Placement (AP).
