At Florida Air Academy, we believe that much of a child's education takes place after classes are over for the day.  Participation in sports is encouraged, and there are many different teams to choose from. New ones like archery, crew and lacrosse are popular, as well as the more traditional ones. 


Our school has a long tradition of excellence in sports, including five state basketball championships, two in baseball, track state medals, and three Olympic athletes (two bronze medals!).  Even more important than winning, however, are the more crucial lessons learned in competitive sports:  learning to work as a team, sportsmanship, and how to manage both "the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat."  Our coaches are expected to teach character as well as the finer points of the sport.

Activities also provide an excellent way for students to discover both enjoyment and possibly a life-long passion. We provide unique activities that many other schools simply can't, such as surfing (Brevard County offers world class surfing conditions) and learning to fly a plane.  

Getting off-campus on the weekends is an important balance to the week-day routine.  What other area in the world offers the outstanding attractions of central east Florida? From Disney and Universal theme and water parks to Kennedy Space Center and Sea World and also local beaches and rivers, we have access to entertainment options that other boarding schools can only dream of!
