Visit Out-of-Door

Although our website will give you a good feel for the school, Out-of-Door is so much more. We invite you to get to know Out-of-Door by contacting our Admissions Office to schedule a personal phone call or meeting with a member of our team.
You will find that our three campuses showcase the diversity of the greater Sarasota community. Since 1924, our Lower School students (grades Pre-K-5) have enjoyed our historic campus nestled under the Banyan trees on Siesta Key. Our Middle School students (grades 6-8) and Upper School students (grades 9-12) take advantage of the collegiate atmosphere of the Uihlein Campus in Lakewood Ranch that opened in 1996. In August 2024, we will open an additional Lower School campus on Clark Road to serve Grades pre-K, Kindergarten, and Grade 1.
