Welcome to Admiral Farragut Academy’s Lower School — a preparatory school unmatched in its breadth and depth, its capacity for innovation, and its commitment to global engagement. As you and your child take this journey, you are encouraged to consider how your child might take advantage of the almost limitless possibilities at Farragut.
We at Farragut often point to the achievements of our alumni – an extraordinary group of astronauts, ship captains, entrepreneurs, high-ranking military personnel, public servants, inventors, artists, performers, and leaders in nearly any field you can think of. For many, their life’s work can be traced back to the foundation established at Farragut. Their remarkable stories can be linked to teachers who encouraged them, peers who applauded them, adversities they have overcome, and endless opportunities sought and achieved.
Academic excellence is expressed in our incredibly broad and deep curriculum which includes innovative programs like STEM, Marine Science, and World Language (Spanish and Mandarin Chinese). As a school with students from more than 32 countries, Farragut is the perfect place to foster a cross-cultural understanding and love of language. With small class sizes, our teachers are able to meet students where they are, then push them further than they ever thought possible. Students who demonstrate exceptional ability take on work that enables them to tap into their full potential.
Farragut is blessed to have a world-class faculty, devoted to teaching and connecting with students well beyond the classroom walls. For us, learning doesn’t just happen within the confines of the classroom. The Farragut Experience allows students the opportunity to learn at places like the Kennedy Space Center, Zoo School at Busch Gardens, Albert Whitted Airport, Salvador Dali Museum, and St. Augustine, just to name a few.
