Hewitt Partners with IMG

Athletics and fitness play an essential role in the Hewitt experience. To that end, our school has partnered with the global sports media conglomerate IMG, the first high school to do so in the country. IMG Academy‘s coaches and instructors will provide professional support and consulting for our athletics program, coaches, and teachers. As well, the Academy will host two Hewitt teams in spring training camps at their Florida facility. This partnership, consistent with our Strategic Plan, emphasizes Hewitt’s commitment to a more holistic approach to girls’ athletics and wellness; team sports still form the framework of the program, but priority is also given to physical development, mental toughness, strategy, communication, and sustainability so our students may make exercise and wellness an integral part of their lives beyond school.
