Southern Teachers is assisting Frederica Academy in the search for its next Head of School. Frederica Academy brings the resources of a larger school to a small school setting, offering AP courses, college dual enrollment, and online learning for students. A comprehensive college counseling program, anchored by Naviance, begins in 9th grade with all graduates accepted to one of their top three college choices each year. In 2016-17 alone, 38 Frederica graduates earned nearly $2 million in scholarship awards (not including the HOPE scholarship).
A low student-teacher ratio ensures a learning environment that maximizes individual needs and potential. Technologybased programs and project-based learning initiatives prepare students for today’s challenging college environments. Campus-wide relationships connect students across grade levels and promote opportunities to work and learn together. An integrated curriculum promotes seamless transitions for students from year to year.
Respect, enthusiasm for learning, striving for achievement, developing and practicing effective communication skills, and demonstrating a steadfast commitment to the school’s Honor Code are standards upheld in the Frederica Academy community. Over 91% of students participate in athletics, with 29 teams in 14 sports offered at the middle school, junior varsity, and varsity levels. The school’s teams compete as a member of the Georgia Independent Schools Association (GISA). The arts are an integral component of the FA experience. With the addition of a new Arts Director in 2017, this program holds much promise for the future.
Frederica Academy enjoys an ideal geographic location on beautiful Saint Simons Island. In addition to pristine beaches and abundant outdoor recreational opportunities, the island is also home to many sites of historic significance. As one of the “Golden Isles” situated on the Georgia coast, Saint Simons is convenient to the cities of Savannah, Georgia, and Jacksonville, Florida. Southern charm and an unhurried island lifestyle combine to make Saint Simons a special place to live and work.
