Last week was Spirit Week at Admiral Farragut Academy. Our Upper School students showed their spirit with four themed days of dress-up, and the homecoming court was announced at Thursday’s lacrosse game against Sarasota High School, where the BlueJackets won 14-3.

On January 17th, Farragut’s Aviation Director Rob Ewing joined Farragut alumni Chris Miller ‘00 and Kreg Brown ‘07 to help coach in the SPIRAL Tropical Bowl. Miller was the head coach of the American team, Brown was on staff as a running back coach, and Ewing was a special teams assistant.
2020 was quite a year and we are all looking forward to things getting back to “normal.” To that end, Admiral Farragut Academy has opened registration for our Summer Camps 2021 and we are offering day and boarding options.
Alumni, pay your Farragut Legacy forward by giving $100 per month for 12 months. Your monthly donation will help raise $240,000 annually in the Founder’s Fund. The fund is critical to the school’s future and provides much-needed student financial assistance to deserving cadets.
