Florida Preparatory Academy, which was known as Florida Air Academy up until June 1, was founded by Jonathan Dwight, an educator and aviation enthusiast from New Jersey.
One of the most highly rated schools of its kind in the region, Florida Prep offers both boarding and non-boarding positions, with an emphasis on academics with a diverse student body.
Florida Prep is a boarding and day school for boys and girls in grades 6-12, located in Melbourne, and has an impressive 100 percent college acceptance since 1978.
In the fall of 2005, the school began accepting female students in both boarding and day capacities. The girls made an excellent contribution to the school and raised the bar academically. There have been five female valedictorians since the school became co-ed.
In 2011 the Academy celebrated its 50th Anniversary year. In 2013, a one-to-one Apple iPad program was implemented as the cornerstone of its focus on 21st Century Learning.
In June, the Academy became Florida Preparatory Academy (Florida Prep) to more accurately reflect its college preparatory identity.
The flight program continues and students may study to obtain their private pilot’s license. The Academy’s emphasis on academics, leadership, character, and preparing students for college and a global business environment continues to be its primary focus.
