Admiral Farragut is a joke. It is more of a rich kids camp than a school. Ranked 8 out of 9 by this site for high school boarding schools, SAT in the low 1000's.50k a year for a substandard education, a total waste of money. Avoid at all costs!!
It is a really good school if you are interested on joining the military or the marines or if you want to study aviation on the future.
We have 3 Daughters at Farragut, it’s an amazing institution. AFA has state of the art facilities with great technological systems. The academics and college prep aspect here are phenomenal but above all the academy helps these young men and women build self confidence.

Any child after 2 years at Farragut can walk up to any adult and look them straight in the eye and shake their hands. This firm foundation of being able to show respect, integrity and high self esteem is embodied in the military values taught to our children here. The military teaches our kids to respect and honor every individual regardless of their race, religion or national origin. The headmaster and his team are very accommodating to families.

The extracurricular activities like Robotics, Art, Science and Sports encourage the kids to think outside the box. Keep up the great work AFA Team. Our daughters love and cherish every moment they spend at AFA.

Admiral Farragut strives to be a school where everyone feels like family. The smaller student population makes it easier to be close with teachers and administration. I can't wait to see the new art building currently going up.
My years at Farragut were challenging and filled with inspiring teachers, mentors and peers. This school prepared me not only for college, but for a career and instilled the values that have made me a successful professional. Highly recommend both Farragut and the boarding experience.
Great for getting into college. Teachers are generally good at what they do. Most are involved with after school activities. You have a chance to meet kids from all over the world. The biggest downfall is they look the other way when kids get bullied.
AFA really gives you more than an education. It gives you a web of connections that you can call to at any point in your life.
I attended 9th-12th grade and it was a great experience. The school is really hands on and works with you to help you succeed.
Alumni of Farragut. Had a great experience, met a lot of amazing people and friends. Good education, small classes, a lot of structure but fun too.
I am the parent of 2 graduates of Admiral Farragut Academy (AFA). This school has to be one of the biggest hoax in Tampa Bay. Admiral Farragut Academy poses as a military school emphasizing strong ethics, virtues and values. In reality, the school is a paid-off academy allowing derelicts and miscreants a way to subvert responsibility. It is a joke. Parents who volunteer or "work" at the school have full reign. Their children are given all of the awards and scholarships and opportunities despite their bad behavior. And, furthermore, have additional chances at being provided entrance to military academies. The rest of the students have their "family money" or "trusts" buy a ticket to the college. There is lots of drugs and alcohol, as well as, sexual misconduct. I would never recommend this school. It was a huge and expensive disappointment. If I could give a zero, I would.
So many different things to choose from, no one is left out.
You learn how to become a real leader
cultural diversity and excellent teachers; small classes
The athletic teams are small and anyone can join, which is good. The coaches help the athletes out and can focus on the specific areas where they need help because of the small teams.
Extracurriculars at the school pretty much cover the main activities people want to do. Also if there is not a club or organization that fits the students needs, it's possible to create one.
