From Admiral Farragut Academy

Admiral Farragut Academy is a college-prep, private school which serves students in K-12th grade in St. Petersburg, Florida. Our Upper School starts in 8th grade and is known worldwide for its boarding program and naval science military structure. Farragut also offers other signature programs such as Aviation, Scuba, Marine Science, Engineering, Sailing, and more.

You might expect–and you would be right–that as a private institution, we have small classrooms, a committed, caring faculty, and a superior curriculum. What you might not expect is that the exposure to and friendships with students from other cultures that your child receives here will translate into an appreciation for being a part of a global community, something larger than oneself. You might also be surprised to know how much the leadership experience gained through our Naval-based fundamentals will help your child succeed and rise above others, from the college admissions process to his or her chosen career path.

Thriving Top Military School for 8th-12th Graders

As a United States Honor Naval military school, our students have the advantage to earn appointments and nominations that otherwise may be difficult to get attending any other academy. More than that though, the military component provides structure, self-discipline, respect, independence, and all-around strong character development.
