The Out-of-Door Academy is a coeducational, college preparatory, independent day school serving 725 students from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade in Sarasota, Florida. Founded in 1924, The Out-of-Door Academy is one of the oldest independent schools in Florida and a founding member of the Florida Council of Independent Schools. The school’s mission is to provide an environment in which students strive to achieve high academic goals and to build character through a balanced program of academics, the arts and athletics. Out-of-Door’s core values: Excellence, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility and Service are the foundation of our school community.
The Out-of-Door Academy is located on two picturesque campuses. The school’s historical Lower School campus is situated on a five-acre site on beautiful Siesta Key, a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. The Middle and Upper Schools reside on the collegiate-style 85-acre Uihlein campus, which is located in Lakewood Ranch, a rapidly growing area of suburban Sarasota. With over 90 years of tradition and excellence in this community, the future of the school is exceptionally bright. Record admissions, enrollment and fundraising have occurred annually for several consecutive years. A successful $20 million dollar capital campaign has transformed the facilities on both campuses, including a new world-class Student and STEM Center that opened in August of 2015.
