The Out-of-Door Academy is an independent, college preparatory school educating 740 students from pre-kindergarten to grade 12 at two campuses in Sarasota.
Our teaching philosophy is defined by the pursuit of excellence and a commitment to build character through a balanced program of academics, the arts and athletics.
Each year, 100% of our graduates are accepted to four-year colleges and universities across the country. Our superior academics are defined by unique programs that cultivate the development of the whole child. The School has continuously implemented new strategies to meet the emerging educational needs of the next generation while staying true to the mission of its founders.
Continued curricular enhancements and investments in state-of-the-art facilities and technology promotes hands-on, student-centered learning.
At ODA, we provide learning opportunities that transcend the walls of the traditional classroom to better prepare our students to live, learn, lead, and succeed in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.
