Admiral Farragut Academy

"Admiral Farragut Academy was founded in Pine Beach, New Jersey, in 1933 under the leadership of Admiral S. S. Robison, USN, former Superintendent of the United States Naval Academy, and Brigadier General Cyrus S. Radford, USMC.

In 1945, the Florida school was established in St. Petersburg. The school is a Naval Honor School, authorized to nominate graduates to compete for special appointments to the various service academies.

In 1989, both schools became coeducational, breaking a fifty-six-year tradition of only enrolling boys. In 1992, the two schools became separate corporations under the laws of the respective states in which they reside.

In 1994, the Admiral Farragut Academy in New Jersey closed. The St. Petersburg Admiral Farragut Academy took possession of academic records from the Pine Beach School and integrated its alumni into a combined Alumni Association located in St. Petersburg."
