Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make in life. Farragut’s Admission Associates will help guide you through the process with individualized attention in a relaxed atmosphere.
The admissions process begins with submitting an inquiry, touring the campus, and completing an online application.
Once the application and (non-refundable) fee have been submitted, one of our Admissions Associates will work with you and your child to complete and prep your file of paperwork for the Admissions Committee to review. Approximately 90% of applicants are offered a letter of acceptance.
