From The Out-of-Door Academy

Since 1924, The Out-of-Door Academy has offered an innovative program focused on educating the whole child in a caring and supportive community. Our founders believed that fresh air, physical activity, and the arts would promote student wellness and a higher level of academic achievement. Today, an Out-of-Door education is defined by the pursuit of excellence and a commitment to build character through a balanced program of academics, the arts and athletics. Our core values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence and Responsibility are the foundation of our school community.

We believe in providing meaningful challenges and learning opportunities in the classroom, on the athletic field, on the stage, and in the community. A strong partnership exists with our families who volunteer their time, talent, and resources to enhance the educational environment on campus and strengthen the bonds across our entire school family.
