Principal: Lillian Beauchamp

 As the Principal of Manatee Academy, I am proud to share information about our outstanding school with you. When visiting Manatee, one finds a positive, well disciplined environment. Classrooms provide an educational atmosphere that is focused on engaging students in all areas of the curriculum. High expectations are met through differentiating the instruction and concentrating on individual student needs. Our wonderful staff members are highly qualified and use research-based strategies to implement St. Lucie County’s Scope and Sequence. Parent involvement and support are important to the success of our students. I encourage you to join our School Advisory Council, PTO or Volunteer program.
