Palmetto Bay Academy
The Academy (6th - 12th)


Who we serve


Our Secondary program the Academy (grades 6-12) supports learners needing all levels of instruction, from Remedial to AP and Dual-Enrollment college courses. 

Our students come from home schools, private schools, public schools, and boarding schools. Most of our students are above average in intelligence and come from professional families. Some have specific learning differences and some are just looking for a different educational experience. What unifies our students is their wish to achieve their personal best.

What are the school days and hours?


The Academy hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30am to 2:45pm.In general, we follow the Miami-Dade school calendar with only slight differences. We also follow their decision for emergency school closings. Students may arrive on campus up to 30 minutes before school and remain on campus up to 20 minutes after school, except in specific situations of tutoring or after-school events. At the Academy there is no supervision before 8:05am or after 3:05pm.

Both the Academy and Beginnings offer traditional full-school schedules or flexible scheduling, hybrid and distance options with curriculum uniquely designed by our award-winning administration.
