Middle School

Welcome to Middle School at MA! We adhere to the Florida Standards in all of our academic courses. MA is a small, family-oriented school with friendly staff and highly qualified teachers. 

Program Highlights


Our curriculum is aligned with Florida’s new B.E.S.T. standards to prepare students for success in high school courses. By focusing on developing critical thinking skills and content knowledge across multiple domains, the curriculum prepares students to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.

Special Programs

8th grade Accelerated Program: Students who pass their 7th grade mathematics state exams qualify for our accelerated 8th grade program where they can take required high school courses such as Algebra I and Biology I while still in middle school. Earning two high school credits in middle school will be a great boost toward their high school graduation requirements, but students who show initiative and aptitude can take it even further. 


For example, one of our 8th grade students successfully completed 6 high school classes in the 8th grade! This means that they will enter high school as a 10th grader and have a significant head start on their path to college.

We offer Industry Certifications through the FLVS to ALL of our interested students in grades 7-11.


There are currently 20 online classes for certifications in:
Microsoft  -  Oracle  -  Adobe  -  CompTIA  -  Cisco
Students can earn up to 12 college credits and meet the Career and Technical requirement for The Gold Medal/Bright Futures scholarship through this certification program.

Extracurriculars & Field Trips


Afterschool Clubs such as Theatre Club, Gaming Club, and Soccer Club and more.

Students are invited to suggest and create their own clubs.

School Activities such as Student Government, Student Debate, Maker Space, Drama, Art and more.

Special Events such as Schoolwide Red vs Blue Sports Competitions, Field Day, Cookouts, Dances, Concerts, Scavenger Hunts, Walking Trips into Town, Occasional Snowball Fights and more​.

We also host Career Days where students can learn from professionals in fields like Law Enforcement, Law, Veterinary Medicine, Banking, Nursing, Firefighting etc. 

Field Trips & Travel:

Micanopy Academy students take many field trips throughout the year to fun and educational places like the Butterfly Museum, the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire, DEFY Gainesville Trampoline Park, University of Florida IFAS Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, University of Florida Engineering Fair, Silver Springs State Park, and many more.

High school students have the opportunity to attend cultural enrichment field trips to distant locations like New York City and Peru.

Community Service

Helping others is an integral part of being a good citizen. We expect our students to contribute a minimum of 75 hours of community service by the time they graduate. Students can fulfill this requirement in various ways. This component will also meet prerequisites for scholarships and college entrance.


In addition to the sports that MA offers students may play any sport through the school they are zoned for.
