Welcome to Eagles Athletics

Fayetteville Academy’s athletic program reflects its commitment to educating the whole child–morally, intellectually, and physically. Athletic competition at the Academy is meant to compliment our mission and core values, while enhancing each student’s educational experience and rounding out our emphasis on liberal arts education.

All coaches recognize the primary emphasis of the Academy is academics.  While athletics provide an excellent arena for the development and maturation of the student, academics should be given top priority.

  • 25 teams compete in 15 different sports
  • Upper School Cheerleading
  • Minimum grade point average required to compete in athletic matches
