Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) is the cornerstone of formal education. The skills learned in a STEM classroom can be applied to every part of life, be it academic or otherwise. At Admiral Farragut Academy, where engineering is considered a signature program, students from PreK all the way up to 12th grade have the opportunity to learn these valuable skills and to find passions in areas that they may not have known existed, and that may not exist for years to come.
Admiral Farragut Academy alumni aren’t just astronauts and admirals. Farragut also has many alumni working in the entertainment industry as actors, writers, directors, producers, and more. The following are just a few of those alumni who attribute much of their success today to the skills they developed at Farragut.

Parents choose Farragut because our teachers create a learning environment that centers around support and compassion from early education to high school graduation. This bond begins with our youngest learners in prekindergarten, which is designed for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds.
