Visit Out-of-Door

Although our website will give you a good feel for the school, Out-of-Door is so much more. We invite you to visit our campuses, meet our faculty and students, and experience all that makes Out-of-Door a special place.
You will find that our two campuses showcase the diversity of the greater Sarasota community. Since 1924, our Lower School students (grades Pre-K-5) have enjoyed our historic campus nestled under the Banyan trees on Siesta Key. Our Middle School students (grades 6-8) and Upper School students (grades 9-12) take advantage of the collegiate atmosphere of the Uihlein Campus in Lakewood Ranch that opened in 1996.
