As an independent, coeducational college preparatory school located on two campuses in Sarasota, Florida, The Out-of-Door Academy has been serving families since 1924.

  • Pre-kindergarten through fifth grade students enjoy the ambiance of the original Out-of-Door campus on Siesta Key. Here, towering banyan trees shelter historic buildings which now house modern classrooms and a first-rate technology infrastructure.

  • This combination of old and new creates an environment that fosters both the sense of security so necessary for learning in younger children, and the teaching techniques to challenge them.

  • Academic, athletic and extra-curricular activities for sixth through twelfth graders are centered on The Out-of-Door Academy's collegiate-style Uihlein Campus in Lakewood Ranch which opened in 1996.

  • Building on programs designed to stretch and challenge individual students in the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools focus on preparing students to move on to college. Out-of-Door students graduate with the responsibility, confidence and independence crucial for successful adaptation to college life.
