Students as young as 9 have been learning to fly at Admiral Farragut Academy, where 2018-19 was a year of groundbreaking advances for the school’s Aviation Program.
Experience Prekindergarten at Farragut
At Admiral Farragut Academy, we consider all of our faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, and even grandparents, as part of the “Farragut Family.” We welcome the relationship and bond that is created between our families and the individuals who interact with, teach, and guide all of our students. 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.
