“We have three daughters at Farragut. It’s an amazing institution. Farragut has state-of-the-art facilities with great technological systems. The academics and college prep aspect here is phenomenal but above all the Academy helps these young men and women build self-confidence. Any child after attending two years at Farragut can walk up to any adult and look them straight in the eye and shake their hand. This firm foundation of being able to show respect, integrity, and high self-esteem is embodied in the values taught to our children here. Our kids are taught to respect and honor every individual regardless of their race, religion or national origin. The extracurricular activities like robotics, art, science, and sports encourage the kids to think outside the box. Our daughters love and cherish every moment they spend at Farragut.” – Dr. & Mrs. Fackih
