Institution Description
Saddlebrook Preparatory School, founded in 1992, was the first Golf Academy to combine academics with Golf Training, developing motivated students in the classroom and aspiring athletes in Golf or Tennis.
Juniors from all over the world, training in Saddlebrook’s golf and tennis camps, wanted to extend their training and maintain their academic studies, so Saddlebrook Preparatory School was created. Today, over 100 students from 20 different countries, form a multi-cultural learning environment. As they study, train in the intensive sports program, and enjoy many recreational activities together, students make friends from all over the world. Students, in Saddlebrook Prep’s fully accredited college-preparatory school, for grades 3 through 12 and post-graduates, benefit from a highly educated, dedicated teaching staff and a small student-to-teacher ratio of 10-to-1. A Prep student may live in our boarding program or with a parent or legal guardian in various housing options within the Saddlebrook community.
At Saddlebrook’s secure, gated resort, the amenities are all within easy walking distance. Juniors safely stroll, bike, or are shuttled between accommodations, classes, sports and fitness training, and meals while supervised by Resident Assistants, teachers, and coaches.
Golfers train at the Academy training facility and golf on the resort’s own two Palmer-designed courses. Student-golfers compete in local, regional, and national tournaments, traveling individually or on a team, depending on the event and player.
Academy graduates attend prestigious universities, typically with scholarships in their sport, or they may even become professionals.
