When Ronald White III, Admiral Farragut Academy Class of 2021 graduate, started high school as a freshman, he wasn’t even sure he wanted to go to college. Now, four years later and two years after starting at Farragut, he graduated with a track scholarship to attend the United States Military Academy Preparatory School at West Point with plans for admission to West Point in the Fall of 2022.
Ten years ago, an 8-year-old Eddie Gaines watched a YouTube video about the United States Military Academy at West Point and decided that that was where he wanted to be. Now, after having graduated with the Admiral Farragut Academy Class of 2021, Eddie has been accepted to West Point will start on June 28th.

Personnel Advancement Requirement (PAR) Sheets are what the Naval Science Department of Admiral Farragut Academy uses to show whether or not a cadet has shown the necessary leadership skills and knowledge of naval science-related topics needed to rank up.
Regimental Training Officer John Young ‘22 wrote this article to explain how PAR sheets work, and why they are important.
It is with great pleasure that we introduce the Regimental Leadership Staff for the 2nd semester of the 2020-21 school year. The regimental commander and regimental staff have proven themselves through their commitment to naval science, leadership, academics, and their desire to improve the Farragut corps of cadets. These are the kinds of events that cadets at a military boarding school work very hard towards. We look forward to seeing what they’ll accomplish! Read more
