Admiral Farragut Academy, Florida’s leading day and boarding school, is providing students with safe, in-person education during these uncertain times. Families worldwide were forced to make changes when the COVID-19 virus became a global pandemic. Schools and students adapted quickly to a virtual school setting as dining room tables became desks, laptops became classrooms.
On Saturday, November 14th, 2020, Admiral Farragut Academy upper school students along with Residential Life TAC Mentor and Dockmaster Chief Dan Kuhl participated in the 24th annual American Legion’s Veterans Day Boat Parade in Madeira Beach, Florida. This was the second year our students appeared in the parade and they were involved in various ways to support this event. All proceeds from the parade went to support local veteran’s charities.
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) are foundational to any 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 a signature program, students from Kindergarten through 12th grade have the opportunity to learn valuable skills and find passions in areas that they may not have known existed — and that may not exist for years.
