“The decision that I made to attend Farragut in 2009 was not easy,” said Farragut alumnus Bolun “Jerry” Liu ‘12. “I was too young to recognize that I was about to begin a journey beyond imagination. An ordinary teenager is not expected to make his bed, iron his clothes, clean his own room, and do homework without supervision or parent’s help. However, by my senior year, I had transformed completely into a responsible young adult with goals for my future. I owe many of my leadership skills to Admiral Farragut Academy.”
After a long year of lockdowns, quarantines, online learning, and fewer activities, our children are ready for more and need something to look forward to.

Many children have had fewer opportunities to be with their peers which is vital for maintaining good mental well-being. Sending your child to summer camp offers that opportunity to be with friends and get that social support.
