The Academy is a full-time school for its many students who live at Ocean Reef Club. Those kids – K through 8 – are the soul of a temporary student’s sense of feeling welcome and at ease in a new classroom. A School with admirable academic standards that welcomes temporary students. Each visiting student’s curriculum is brought or sent from his or her home school. Stays at The Academy are determined by how long the student will be at ORC; the minimum is a week. There are field trips to wildlife refges all over the south Florida area with programs and projects to help develop the students’ sense of responsibility for their environment.
