Welcome to Frederica Academy, home of the Knights!
FA has an extensive athletic program based on the principle that participating in athletics assists a student in developing beyond the physical conditioning of general exercise. Athletic participation teaches students the value of teamwork, the satisfaction of working toward a goal, performance under pressure, and responding to adversity. We believe that when taught properly and effectively, athletic participation develops leadership skills, work ethic, confidence and a healthy respect for the competitive spirit. These values, along with the promotion of physical well-being, will help our students find success in their life-long pursuits.
Frederica Academy offers 13 sports to both ladies and gentlemen, and fields 28 teams within these areas at the middle school, junior varsity, and varsity levels. Our teams compete as a member of the Georgia Independent Schools Association (GISA) in Region 2-AA and also schedule competitions with nearby institutions in Florida and South Carolina. Participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege to be earned, not a universal right. Involvement requires an obligation to sportsmanship and academic performance, in addition to, the commitment to a particular sport.
Since 1974, the Frederica Academy Knights have earned 58 State Championships and 137 Region Titles. Approximately 88 percent of our students in grades 7-12 participate in on-campus athletic programs.
