Florida Air Academy

1950 S Academy Dr, Melbourne, FL 32901

Founded by Col. Jonathan Dwight, Florida Air provides a combined program of academic study and leadership training. After enrolling only boys for more than 40 years, the school opened both its boarding and its day divisions to girls in the fall of 2005. The college preparatory curriculum, which is grounded in the core subjects, includes honors and Advanced Placement courses in the major disciplines. Structured classroom instruction and compulsory study periods are characteristics of the program. An intensive English as a Second Language program serves international students. Operating as an official US Air Force Junior ROTC Unit, the school offers aerospace science and military instruction. Flight training for academic credit, including simulator instruction and aircraft experience, provides the groundwork needed to qualify for a private pilot certificate.
