A Few Words About our School


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.


Fayetteville Academy was recently voted the best private school in Fayetteville and Cumberland County by Up and Coming Weekly Magazine and the Fayetteville Observer.

The Numbers…

At Fayetteville Academy, we pride ourselves on upholding a tradition of academic excellence that began in 1970. The Academy is the only independent, non-sectarian, PK – 12th grade school in Cumberland County. We provide a unique learning environment where children are encouraged to explore every opportunity, set and exceed expectations, and expand their knowledge base daily. Small class sizes, a safe and caring atmosphere, and numerous extracurricular activities ensure that each child at the Academy receives a unique educational experience.
