  • Believe in learning by doing, creating interactive classrooms, labs, and studios 
  • Find teachable moments outside the classroom every day

Classroom & Real-life Experiences

Classroom instruction involves both independent and small, collaborative group participation. In addition to the everyday curriculum, students also have the opportunity to challenge themselves in many academic competitions throughout the year in different subject areas like Robotics, Spoken Word Poetry, Spelling Bees, Mathematics, and more.

The Farragut Experience includes a robust curriculum complemented by travel and hands-on experiences. For example...

  • AP U.S. History students spend three days exploring St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement and port in the continental United States.
  • Scuba and Marine Biology students study salt and freshwater marine life while diving and camping at the many natural springs in north Florida.
  • Second grade students spend a day at Busch Gardens' "Zoo School" to learn about animal habitats and how animals care for themselves in the wild.
  • Fifth grade students spend the night at the Kennedy Space Center and get to meet a NASA astronaut. Two of the 12 moon walking astronauts are Farragut graduates!
  • Middle and high school students embark on a nine-day educational adventure to Washington D.C. during Thanksgiving break during which they tour more than 75 venues and sites.
  • Aviation students spend 2-3 hours per day at Albert Whitted Airport learning to fly Cessna airplanes, earning their Private Pilot's License, and eventually flying solo!
