With 86 years of history, Farragut has seen its alumni do many amazing things. We’ve seen our graduates become Navy admirals, professional athletes, movie stars, and, famously, moonwalking astronauts.

Many alumni attribute their success to the skills they learned at Farragut, and 1966 graduate Tom Carbaugh is no exception.
