Florida Air Academy provides a challenging academic program in a structured environment that allows students to be highly successful in the classroom and well prepared for success in college and beyond. Our strong academic program is enhanced by a variety of fun extracurricular activities.
Florida Air Academy is a co-ed college-preparatory military school for boarding and day students in grades 6 through 12. Founded in 1961 by the Dwight family, FAA is committed to uniting academic excellence and global citizenship in a school community where students of many nationalities have an equal opportunity to collaborate, participate, and achieve.
At Florida Air, the future is the focus. Students are exposed early to goal-setting strategies and college planning and preparation. Each students curriculum is constructed to put them at the best possible advantage for college acceptance and ongoing future success. Students in the middle school have the opportunity to take high school-level mathematics and foreign language courses, and to explore their personal interests through electives such as art and journalism. High school students may challenge themselves through Honors, Advanced Placement, and college dual-enrollment offerings.
With each student completing a mandatory one-year enrollment in the AFJROTC program, FAAs values reflect the core values of the Air Force - Integrity, Service and Excellence. The discipline provided by AFJROTC along with our military structure teaches students the self- discipline, personal responsibility, and time management skills that are trademarks of 21st century leaders and innovators.
With representation from approximately 23 countries around the world, FAA students are uniquely prepared for the challenges of a global economy. Each student leaves here with an appreciation of other cultures, and has developed friendships and connections all over the world.
At Florida Air Academy, we are proud to develop students who blend academic ability, integrity and good character, along with a knowledge of world cultures, into a powerful force--well prepared for future success, growth, and 21st century leadership.
