On Monday, February 18, four Farragut seniors were recognized for their audio essay submissions in the annual VFW “Voices of Democracy” essay contest. The topic this year was “Why My Vote Matters” and the students developed their speeches by talking with family and friends and conducting independent research. Audio essay submissions had to be at least three to five minutes long and were submitted last October.
Here is a recap of Alumni events for February 2019.
Cadets Angela LoRusso ’19 and Madison Moore ’21 competed in the 2019 Florida Girls State Wrestling Tournament this weekend. This year’s girl’s state tournament was the toughest competition in its 8-year history with 275 girls from 94 schools competing. Girls wrestling has seen exponential growth in Florida the past few years with an estimated 700 girls registered this season. And girls wrestling continues to be the fastest growing high school sport nationally.

Dear Farragut Families,
I wanted to reach out to all of you with an update on the exciting things that are shaping up around our auction “Reach for the Stars” on Saturday, April 6th and to let you know where we need your assistance.
This year, JJ Buggle, Admiral Farragut Academy Director of Community Outreach, has been diligently connecting with the community and actively engaging with organizations including the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce, Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber, and the Seminole Chamber of Commerce to share about the amazing things happening at Admiral Farragut Academy.
On February 11th Admiral Farragut Academy had an opportunity to recognize one of its top leaders during the morning formation. The Academy is pleased to announce that CLTJG Shyann Laporte ’20, an outstanding cadet, has been recognized as one of only five students to be chosen from among hundreds as a winner of the West Point Society of West Florida’s prestigious General Norman H. Schwarzkopf Leadership Award.
Greetings Farragut Families!
We are pleased to announce that Admiral Farragut Academy will be hosting a Lower School Open House on the morning of Thursday, April 4th and an Upper & Boarding School Open House on the morning of Sunday, April 28th.
We feel that we have a very special community here at Farragut, and our goal is to share that with the rest of St. Petersburg and the world! We see this as an opportunity for us to spread the word about what Admiral Farragut Academy has to offer, and we are asking for your help.
If you have friends, acquaintances, co-workers, or family that you think might be looking for the perfect academic fit for their child, please help us get the word out about our Open Houses by sending them to our landing page: www.farragut.org/open-house.
Thank you for helping our Farragut Family grow!
