Head of School

Welcome to Frederica Academy and to the school’s website. Perusing this site at your leisure will begin to introduce you to the mission, campus, and the personality of the school and will allow you an electronic glimpse into the Frederica experience.

Frederica Academy has been providing an outstanding education to families in the Golden Isles (St. Simons Island and surrounding area) for fifty years. More than 1,000 alumni from Frederica have gone on to succeed at a whole host of colleges and universities and are now making important contributions in all walks of life in their respective communities throughout the nation and the world.

A Frederica education is anchored in an academic experience that is both challenging and supportive. Whether one is enrolled in our preschool program or our twelfth grade, Frederica students connect new knowledge and ways of thinking to important real-life situations. Beyond the wide array of humanities, math, and science classes, Frederica students also enjoy the opportunity to explore interests and develop talents in a variety of athletics, arts, and service activities. In a culture that prizes character, integrity, achievement, and kindness, Frederica students enjoy a safe and supportive environment in which to learn more about themselves and the world around them.

My hope is that you will take the time to visit our beautiful campus in the weeks and months ahead and discover more about Frederica. Those of us who work here are extremely proud of all that goes on during the school year, and we would love the opportunity to share our school and community with you.
