Dear Farragut Families,
The Farragut Family Association (FFA) would like to thank everyone for their support throughout the 2019-2020 school year. This was not a typical school year but together we did our best to end the year strong. Unfortunately, the FFA was not able to hold all of the originally planned events, one of which is typically the biggest fundraiser of the year – the auction/gala. We are happy to report the events we were able to host were successful and wanted to share a little recap. Family participation in these events is a great opportunity to build relationships with other parents and raise funds for the school.
With rising enrollment each of the past five years, we are thankful to have such an incredible community of families and students. Read more

Dear Farragut Families,
During these difficult times, I want to reach out and thank everyone for their patience and understanding.
As anticipated, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came out this weekend and officially closed all public and private schools and mandated schools continue distance learning for the remainder of the school year. Following suit, Admiral Farragut Academy will finish the academic year online.
This will go down as our COVID-19 quarter, and we will make sure it does not impact your child’s academic future in a negative way. The learning curve for the adults and students has been a challenge, but a good challenge. As the students move forward they will look back at this experience in a positive way.
Over the next few weeks we will be sending out information on a few different topics: Read more
