The students at The Academy at Ocean Reef have an afternoon sports and activities program that is quite distinctive. At 3:30 p.m., the school mini-bus picks up students from K-8th grade for their afternoon adventures at The Reef. After a full day of a challenging curriculum, the group is ready to roll.
A full schedule including tennis, chess club, Pickleball, running club, and golf keep the students out and about enjoying The Reef on a daily basis. Remi Helms, fourth grade “seasonal” student from Pennsylvania, calls The Academy her “summer/winter school”. Preston Carroll, a fifth grade year round student, is sure his golf and Pickleball games have really improved this year, and Kiki Brainard, soon to graduate from eighth grade and head to Deerfield Academy, is looking forward to playing tennis in high school. So along with developing strong academics, these students and others are thrilled they have the opportunity to strengthen their skills in sports right here at The Reef.
A special after school program will be added to the schedule after the upcoming Spring Break. Sure to be a popular choice for many students, The Academy is pleased to start a “swim team” at our new pool at the Fitness Center.
So just like the adults at The Reef, our Academy students have a full line up of activities and sports to choose from, as they keep busy and happy enjoying their days at Ocean Reef Club.
