The team got its name by the fact of being formed by high school students in 1983.[1] Its founders were Jacinto Spencer dos Santos, Domingos Emanuel Soares, Francisco Adriano Contina Inês, Mario Anibal Costa, Nelson dos Santos and Domingos Lopes Correia. The club is an affiliate to Académica de Coimbra in Portugal. It is one of several regional championships that has more than an affiliate of another club in Cape Verde, the other is Académica da Calheta further north on the island.

The club became a registered club in 1987.[2] The club started to play in regional competitions in 1991 when the Maio Island League was founded and was the first club to win a regional title and was the first club from the island to compete at the national level. The club celebrated its 10th anniversary of foundation in 1993. Two consecutive titles for the club were won in 1995. The club celebrated its 25th anniversary of foundation in 2008. Later, the club also won two consecutive titles in 2013 and two consecutive titles in 2016. Also, twice that the club won all four different regional competitions in 2013 and three in 2016.

Académico 83 was not as successful as last season, the 2016-17 season had a moderate success, they started fifth, their first match was a loss to Morrerense 2-1 on January 14. A win over Académica Calheta put their position to fourth, on February 26 a draw with Onze Unidos put the club to fifth, a win over Real Marítimo at the 9th round put the club to second. A bye week at the 11th round would formally put the club to third for the rest of the season, the last two matches of the season ended in draws, first with nothing scored with Académica da Calheta, then a goal draw with Onze Unidos on April 23. The club finished third with 20 points, Académica Calheta also shared the points total, Académico 83 conceded nine goals, four less than Académica Calheta. The club scored 17 goals, nearly half than last season, it was ranked third and was one of three clubs who scored that many. Also at the Maio Cup, in one of the competition, the club was kicked out from further competition after they lost to Onze Unidos in the penalty shootouts 4-3 as the match ended in a scoreless draw.
