About Saddlebrook Academy

Saddlebrook Preparatory is an independent school situated on the grounds of Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, approximately 25 miles north of Tampa. Saddlebrook Academy was founded in 1992 in conjunction with the Pasco County School Board. In 1997, the school became private and was renamed Saddlebrook Preparatory (Prep). All students enrolled in our prep school in Florida are also concurrently enrolled in either the Saddlebrook Tennis Program or the Saddlebrook Golf Academy. As an academic institution, Saddlebrook Prep is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Florida Council of Independent Schools.
