Financial Aid

Admiral Farragut Academy is committed to attracting diverse, motivated, and talented students of strong character. We also believe enrollment should be open to all qualified applicants, not just to those who can pay full tuition. We offer options for families in need such as payment plans and need-based financial aid.

Financial aid is awarded on a yearly basis from a limited budget, so we encourage to begin the process as early as possible. Families must reapply for financial aid each year. The amount of money awarded is not guaranteed and may differ from year to year based on need and availability of funds.

Some other resources that families have found helpful are: Florida Resident Scholarships, Loans, and Veteran Benefits. Assitance from these resources may be used in conjunction with Farragut's need-based financial aid.

Need-Based Financial Aid

More About the Process

Requests for need-based financial assistance are considered only after a student has received a letter of acceptance from the school and completed the financial aid application. Current Farragut families are given priority consideration for assistance and awards are made contingent on good financial standing. Awards are revoked should the account balance not be satisfied by the end of the academic year. 

The award calculated by School & Student Services (SSS) is only a recommendation and does not necessarily represent the amount the family will be awarded. Admiral Farragut Academy's financial aid committee will discuss and decide on the amount awarded. Please note that it can take four to six weeks for Farragut to receive the recommendation report from SSS. Once a decision is made the family will be notified by letter from Farragut with the actual award. Due to the continuing increase in financial aid requests the committee's philosophy is to "spread the funds" and help as many families as possible.

Financial Aid FAQ's

How is eligibility for aid determined?

Prospective students must complete the admissions process and be accepted prior to being considered for financial aid.

Like many independent schools, Admiral Farragut uses the services of School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a third party administrator, to assist in determining a family’s ability to contribute to educational expenses. Our Financial Aid Committee uses this assessment along with a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) and any additional information regarding special circumstances to make financial aid award decisions, taking into consideration our financial aid budget for any given year. As a result, Farragut's calculated parent contribution may differ from the SSS calculation.

For example, Farragut will consider the potential for income to be earned by an able, non-working parent who does not have children under the age of four at home.
