Montverde Academy also places an emphasis on developing students physically through positive interscholastic competition. The Academy’s athletic programs encourage students to develop healthy exercise habits, increase self-esteem and stress the importance of sportsmanship while enjoying the challenges of competition. Montverde Academy continues to invest in the beautification of its campus on a daily basis.  It is the vision of Headmaster Kesselring to provide the students, faculty, and staff with a clean and professional environment in order to enhance the overall experience at the Academy.  With some of the finest athletic facilities in the country, Montverde Academy has quickly become one of the most popular destinations in the State of Florida and the United States for sport specific training and team performance. Currently Montverde Academy is the back to back Dick’s Sporting Goods National Champions in boys’ varsity basketball as well as ranked #1 in the nation in boys’ varsity soccer.

Montverde Academy has had so much success in both soccer and basketball that we have created two academies here on campus that encompass everything about both sports. The Soccer Institute at Montverde Academy (SIMA) is an educational and athletic endeavor aimed to help promote “the beautiful game” by providing a challenging and competitive forum to teach the sport of soccer to all who demonstrate a passion to play.

Montverde Academy also offers in depth and wide ranged opportunities in the arts with our first year opening of the Montverde Academy Music Conservatory. The mission of the Music Conservatory is to broaden student’s understanding of the varied and wondrous offerings that are in the arts and to encourage young artists to create their own art, music, and theatre. The Montverde Academy Music Conservatory offers more classes both in scope and variety than the average performing arts school or magnet program. We offer a minimum of three instructional hours per day for each Conservatory student as well as additional practice time, field trips to concerts, weekend rehearsals, master classes, research and performances. Montverde Academy’s Conservatory program is designed to give students every tool they will need to enter college as a music major and excel above the rest. For more information please visit
