Athletics are an important part of the Academy experience. Our award-winning athletic department fields 37 athletic teams at the Middle School, Junior Varsity, and Varsity levels, and more than 80% of Academy students in grades 5-12 participate in school-sponsored athletics. As members of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) 2-A/3A Classification, our Wildcats have won multiple district, regional and state championships, and consistently earn All-District and All-State honors.
Over the last eight years, more than 17% of Academy’s senior student-athletes have received financial packages to participate in collegiate athletics, compared to the national average of 2%.
In keeping with the school’s mission, Academy has a no-cut policy for all athletic teams.
