Boarding and Day School
Admiral Farragut Academy is a college-prep, private school which serves students in PreK-12th grade and is located in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida with a waterfront campus. Our Upper School, which starts in 8th grade, is also known worldwide for its Boarding program and Naval Science program’s military structure. Farragut also offers other signature academic programs: Aviation, Scuba, Marine Science, Engineering, Sailing, and more!
You might expect–and you would be right–that as a private institution, we have small classrooms, a committed, caring faculty, and a superior curriculum. What you might not expect is that the exposure to and friendships with students from other cultures that your child receives here will translate (pun intended!) into an appreciation for being a part of a global community, something larger than oneself. You might also be surprised to know how much the leadership experience gained through our Naval-based fundamentals will help your child succeed and rise above others, from the college admissions process to his or her chosen career path.
Core values were established and engrained in the psyche of the Farragut student since the school’s inception. Over the years, cadets shaped these core values and became greater because of them. Students at Farragut continue to use these core values to achieve success in and out of the classroom.
Farragut has a longstanding tradition of building leaders who will impact the world. That tradition grows every year with each graduating class. With students from around the world, the country, and several local towns and neighborhoods, we take pride in what our global community on campus is all about. But we’re not just about building leaders. — We’re about building a family. — A place where everyone supports each other.
MEET OUR NOTABLE ALUMNI
Since 1990, when the first female student began attending Farragut, we have thrived with a co-ed population. Our diverse population is one of the reasons we produce people ready to take on the world. Our female alumni members include everyone from naval ship commanders to commercial airline pilots to lawyers and doctors.
