On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, I want to wish you and your family a Happy New Year. The Farragut staff is looking forward to working with you and your child as we continue this year of success.
As we enter the middle of Farragut’s 84th year, I am pleased to say our student body growth and diversity continues to make Farragut one of the most exciting and interesting communities. In addition our campus facility improvements continue to make me proud.
The buzz is in the air with our plans to build a new multi-purpose building. A place for our students to assemble, hear speakers, and collaborate. In addition to providing much needed classroom space for the Fine Arts and offices, this will space will enable us to expand STEM programs and boarding facilities.
Other steps for improvements and advancements have already begun for next year, including:
The Upper School will offer the Advanced Placement Capstone Program which consists of a two-year high school program and two new courses: the AP Seminar and the AP Research Courses. Two more AP course offerings and courses in chorus and film are being added.
The Lower School continues to add modules in the STEM program and coding classes in Computer Science.
I am sure you have all seen the wonderful things our students and faculty are doing as highlighted in our weekly e-news and on our website. Sometimes I am truly amazed at the things that happen at our little piece of paradise here in St. Petersburg.
We look forward to many endearing moments this spring as we move toward the culmination of the journey at Farragut for our 80 seniors. These fine young men and women are already receiving a plethora of college acceptances to a wide array of colleges and universities. Early acceptances include: Florida State, Princeton, The Citadel, Duke, and Colorado. This is the final chapter in their Farragut experience and we are anxious to see what their future holds.
We truly value your loyalty to Admiral Farragut Academy, and in turn we strive to do our part to keep your faith in the education we provide. Together, we do wonders in helping your child aspire to greatness.
Please accept this invitation to join us for the 2017-2018 school year. We request you return your child’s contract as soon as possible for purposes of planning and scheduling. We are also offering special tuition discounts this year that we hope your family can take advantage of.
Thank you for being a part of our community.
