What does IMG Academy look for in a student-athlete?
IMG Academy looks for student-athletes who have a strong commitment to academics, athletics and personal growth. Student-athletes must be diligent in their school, sport and community duties, with a willingness to give their all in each area.
What is the Admissions process?
All prospective student-athletes must submit a completed application, including academic records and recommendations. Also, we strongly encourage all prospective families to schedule a visit of the campus through the Student-Athlete Advisor of their respective sport program. The visit might include a class shadow experience and meetings with Admissions staff, coaches and faculty.
Is the Admissions process competitive?
Absolutely. Each sport has a predetermined number of spaces available and IMG Academy classes are capped to maintain low student-to-teacher ratios.
How good do I have to be at my sport?
While each IMG Academy sport has different qualifications for participation, all of our sport programs share a common denominator in that athletic performance is not the determining frequently asked questions factor in acceptance. Most importantly, all prospective student-athletes are required to have a passion for their sport and a motivation to reach their full potential.
What is the minimum age?
It varies by sport: Baseball (age 11), Basketball (13), Football (11), Golf (8 for non-boarding, 11 for boarding), Lacrosse (14), Soccer (12), Tennis (8 for non-boarding, 11 for boarding).
What if a student-athlete gets injured?
If an injury occurs that keeps a student-athlete away from normal training and participation, they are transferred into the Injured Athlete Program (IAP). IAP places the injured student-athlete into the Athletic and Personal Development program, which will allow them to seamlessly transition back into their sport after rehabilitation and receiving a medical release for participation.
