The Island Academy is a primary school with classes from Beginners to Standard VI or Kindergarten to Grade Eight. Each class consists of no more than 15 students. Located beachfront in the heart of San Pedro, we offer students and families an education benchmarked to prepare children for the future.
The Island Academy aims to provide, within a disciplined and caring framework, the educational and social foundations necessary to allow and encourage children to develop their potential.

As the world continues to shrink and become a global society, all students must develop an appreciation of individual differences and gain a broad perspective on the world as a whole.

The student body at The Island Academy, as well as the faculty, includes people from all over the world. Special bonds form between people who learn, work and play together. It is through this bond that we will all discover that even with our differences we are all very much alike.

At The Island Academy, students are encouraged to contribute their own individual talents, strengths and perspectives to all of the student body and the faculty.

The academic program at The Island Academy is designed to provide the student with courses that will optimize their potential and prepare them for the future.

To graduate from The Island Academy, students must successfully complete courses in Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Spanish. Enrichment courses consisting of Art and Physical Education will also be a part of the curriculum, to name a few.

Students will be provided with opportunities to participate in charitable programs with the community and the school. We are undenominational, but in conjunction with the local Catholic church, students will also be able to participate in Holy Communion and Confirmation.

We promote a safe environment with consideration and co-operation and a belief that the positive aspects of life arise from good relationships, unselfishness, thoughtfullness and good manners.

Families interested in attending The Island Academy must first complete and submit the Application for Admission form. Upon review, a representative from the school will contact you to arrange for further information.

The Island Academy structure is outlined in our Student Handbook. Here you will find information regarding tuition, academic requirements, the grading system, appearance and dress code, student conduct, faculty, and in general about our daily life.
