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.

It gives you more drive – way more drive, to try to be better than the person you’re walking next to at school.
IMG Academy takes pride in everything here – school, baseball, the workouts, nutrition – everything you do here, you’re doing it for a purpose, and they want you to get better, they want you to succeed and push you to be the best you can be in every aspect of life.
IMG is a breeding ground for excellence in general, not just athletically. I love the game of baseball, and I want to stay around it as long as possible, but IMG has also been a tool for me to help me get to the next level academically and my career.
Overall, I had everything I needed, from coaching, facilities, training, gym, food, so, whoever wants to get better in their specific sport, coming here with the environment and atmosphere with all the students who have the same goal - it’s amazing and the best way to get better.
I got the discipline from going to golf, and then going to school and preparing myself mentally when I go to college because it’s a similar structure. I’m challenged every day because I have three AP classes and Honors classes. I’ve also been exposed to LPGA tournaments.
IMG Academy has made me mature not only on the court, but off the courts as well. I think it's the best place to the train in the world.
