The selection of The First Academy as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment. The 1 to 1 program has given students limitless opportunities to customize their curriculum, from taking Virtual Coding courses to experiencing movie production in World History where students record themselves reenacting battles of World War II. Teachers who have embraced the program have seen major learning gains from their International students taking English 11, using apps like Quizlet and Notability.
The First Academy is a Christ-centered, college-preparatory school serving over 1,450 Central Florida students across four academic divisions – Upper School (9th-12th), Middle School (7th-8th), Lower School (K4-6th), and the Extended Educational Programs (Preschool, Homeschool, and Special Needs).
