Welcome to Fayetteville Academy

On behalf of the entire Fayetteville Academy family, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to our school’s website. We are delighted to have attracted your interest and believe that you will quickly come to understand what makes this such a special place.  

Building upon a 53-year history of excellence, Fayetteville Academy is now the top-rated school in the region, and ranks among the finest independent schools in North Carolina. It has achieved this distinction by a steady and firm focus on what matters: Excellence across the full spectrum of academics, arts, athletics, and character development. From state of the art STEAM labs and a budding dual enrollment program with the UNC system to state championship athletic teams, and from award-winning arts courses to a comprehensive advisory and service program, Fayetteville Academy ‘s commitment to developing the whole child is evident wherever one looks.

Fayetteville’s only non-sectarian independent school, Fayetteville Academy educates its students without bias or agenda. We serve students of all backgrounds and we honor the values and beliefs of all our families.  It is our goal to help students learn how to think, not what to think. Our community holds itself to high values and standards for integrity and personal character.  

All this takes place in an intimately-sized school setting. We are deliberately small as it allows us to truly know our students and naturally fosters a safe and nurturing environment. At the same time, our size creates concentrated opportunities for our students to explore and develop all facets of their personhood.  At large schools a student might be a scholar, an artist, or an athlete. At Fayetteville Academy, a student can be a scholar, an artist, and an athlete. When you combine excellence with strong character, a young leader is the result.

Creating an environment where young people can thrive is not inexpensive; our families consistently and rightfully consider Fayetteville Academy to be an investment in their child’s future – an investment which will pay dividends throughout their life. However, the benefits of a Fayetteville Academy education may be more affordable than you think; we are committed to making it accessible to as many families as possible and offer generous tuition assistance to qualifying applicants.

Whether you are an FA alum preparing for your child to be part of the next generation of Eagles, a family exploring educational opportunities for your child, or a military family looking for a school that understands and supports families who serve, I invite you to fully explore this website and learn more about us. I am confident that the more you know, the more compelling our school becomes.

Of course, you can really only know us by seeing the school in person.  You’ll find the best teachers in the area, happy, thriving students, and a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. I am confident that if you visit, you will find Fayetteville Academy to be an exceptional option for your child!  

If you have any questions about our school, please do not hesitate to contact me personally – I would be delighted to speak with you and help your family make the best educational decision for your child.

I hope to see you soon –
