A Few Words About our School


Fayetteville Academy Original Building

In 1969, a group of dedicated men and women had the commitment and passion to create a premier, independent college preparatory school that would embrace “The Three A’s”–Academics, Arts, and Athletics. 

This dedicated group of trustees seized the moment and recognized “Futura Est In Praesentia,” and their vision and quest for excellence became the foundation for The Fayetteville Academy. In selecting the name Fayetteville Academy, it was the hope of the original board to create a school that would distinguish itself as a leader in private education.
