ON TOMS RIVER
With the conviction that the duty of a school is far
greater than that of merely imparting knowledge to
youthful minds, the Admiral Farragut Academy seeks
to develop in each Cadet those qualities that go toward the
making of a worthwhile citizen. Indeed the allfconsurning
desire of the school is that each graduate shall have not
only a thorough knowledge of the groundwork of the arts
and sciences, but shall also be a young gentleman, imbued
with honor, moral courage, uprightness and truth, and
one who has a deep and everlasting love for God,
Country and Home. This Academy is dedicated to
Admiral Farragut. May his spirit, sense of duty, loyalty,
industry and courage guide and direct the course and
action of every cadet of this Academy.

The Admiral Farragut Academy
P U R P o s E
The Admiral Farragut Academy is an academy of the iirst class chartered under the laws of
the State of New Jersey. Youths who have satisfactorily completed the fourth grade of grammar
school are eligible for the Junior School.
The Admiral Farragut Academy is situated on a promontory overlooking the scenic Toms
River where it flows into the picturesque expanse of Barnegat Bay. There are very few locations
in the United States better suited for a Naval Preparatory School, more ideally endowed with a
combination of scenic beauty and excellent climatic conditions the year 'round than the central
area of the New Jersey coast wherein the Academy site is located.
History notes that the greater portion of the New Jersey indians populated this area to avail
themselves of the breezy summers, mild and dry winters, the exhilarating swimming in the
Toms River and the fishing in Barnegat Bay. Toms River, Lakehurst, and their environs, like
Atlantic City, Seaside and other shore localities, are noted for their healthful and invigorating
climate. The surrounding pines and cedars are an important factor in making this area one of
the most healthful communities in America.
The Admiral Farragut Academy is readily reached via modern concrete highways from
New York City Q75 milesj, Philadelphia Q56 milesj, and Atlantic City Q55 milesj. There is
frequent bus service in close proximity to the Academy. The Pennsylvania and the Central Rail'
road of New Jersey furnish service to and from Toms River.
TOMS RIVER HISTORY
Toms River and its environs boast a proud and intensely colorful role in the Colonial and
Revolutionary periods of our country. The upper reaches of Barnegat Bay, the Toms River
and its tributaries were uncharted and comparatively unknown in those days except to the local
inhabitants. The sturdy and stalwart colonists fished, plied the coastwise trade, and built water'
craft while peace reigned. In the series of Colonial Wars the colonists availed themselves of
the wellfhidden approaches to these waters and abandoned their peaceful pursuits for the more
patriotic and possibly more prontable duty of raiding enemy commerce. During these wars,
Toms River became a haven and stronghold whence issued swarms of privateers to harass the
commerce, troop convoys, and even fighting craft of the French, Spanish, and British Kings as
they successively incurred the wrath of the colonists.
Local legend bears the tale that Captain Kidd stored many of his treasures on Money Island,
directly across the river from the Academy. Investigation of this yarn discloses numerous excava'
tions around the island which corroborate the many futile efforts to acquire the hidden treasure.
Students at the Admiral Farragut Academy are designated as Naval Cadets. Their training
is of a twofold nature and consists of:
fa, Equipping cadets with the groundwork of educational fundamentals by means of preparatory
courses of study in the Arts, Sciences and Commercial Subjects as prescribed by the College
Entrance Examination Board or the entrance requirements of the U. S. Naval, Iviilitary, or the
U. S. Coast Guard Academies.
fbj Developing cadets by means of a supplementary curriculum of physical training, and naval
drills. The naval drills consist of infantry, gunnery, navigation, and seamanship.
The supplementary curriculum mentioned in fbj illustrates the nautical character of the
Academy. It should not be construed, however, that the mission of the Admiral Farragut
Academy is that of preparing young men primarily for seafaring activities or that the Academy
curricula omit any subject or study required' for entrance into the institutions mentioned in fab.
Each Cadet is taught the setfup and bearing of an oiiicerg he is given a code of rules
governing his personal appearance, manner of expression, his conduct in public, at the table, in
the company of elders and seniors, and in the company of his fellows.
The timefhonored precepts and traditions of naval courtesy are taught him and it is not long
before the parent notes a marked transition from the careffree, perhaps careless, boy to the young
gentleman whose appearance is correct and cheerful, whose company is enjoyable and whose
conduct is proper.
PROPOSED NEW DORMITORY AND CLASS ROOM BUILDING
ADMISSION TO THE ADMIRAL
In all admissions to the Academy, regard is given to the character and physique of the
candidate as well as to his scholastic background as reflected in his previous school record.
Youths who have satisfactorily completed the eighth grade of grammar school or any part
of the High School Course are eligible for the regular preparatory courses.
The Academy will also accept a limited number of cadets in its Junior Department provided
they are of good character and meet the physical requirements.
The parent or guardian of each candidate must iile a form application fthe last page of this
catalog, with the Registrar.
Nature of the Academic Studies. The work in each subject is based on the latest require-
ments in the syllabi set forth by the College Entrance Examination Board and the Naval, Military
and Coast Guard Academies. The courses in Seamanship and Navigation comply with the
requirements of the Steamboat Inspection Service of the Department of Commerce.
Classroom work and study are pursued with a view to thoroughness. The limitation of the
number of cadets in each class to an average of ten, 55 minute periods, individual attention, com'
pulsory extra instruction, rigid accountability for lesson assignments and recitations comprise the
mechanics of the Academic Departments methods.
Cadets who are unable to cover their assignments with the required degree of thoroughness
or who show general inaptitude in their studies are given special attention and guidance with a
view to their improvement. Extra instruction, when needed, is compulsory and takes precedence
over all other activities.
V The Academy reserves the right to reclassify a cadet and change his program of subjects
as may be required by the nature of his course and the progress of his work.

SUB CHASER AND ONE OF NEW' SLOOPS
SPECIAL PREPARATION FOR THE
Cadets preparing solely for entrance or substantiating examinations to the U. S. Naval Acad'
emy, the U. S. Military Academy, or the U. S. Coast Guard Academy are grouped in special sec'
tions in mathematics, history, English, and physics so as to meet each individual's requirements.
These sections are in charge of instructors who are experienced in preparing candidates for
the government academies and by them cadets are given a thorough and intensive review in all
necessary subjects. No other activities of the Academy are allowed to interfere with the primary
purpose of these classes.
In addition to the advantages of experienced guidance in academic preparation, cadets have
the further benefit of active participation in the routine common to each of the government acadef
mies as well as instruction in the elementary phases of naval training. In other words, our cadets,
upon entrance into a government academy, are not entering a new and bewildering world but are
simply continuing a routine of life, even though it be more intricate, to which they became
accustomed at the Admiral Farragut Academy. It has been found that many of the failures at the
government academies may be attributed to boys' failing to adjust themselves to the entirely
different life to which they are suddenly subjected. Our cadets are fortunately in a position to
avoid this possibility.
Parents whose sons anticipate entering the Government Academies should have their boys
examined by a physician to ascertain whether they can meet the physical requirements. The
nature of such physical requirements can be found in the entrance regulations. These can be
procured upon written request addressed to the Superintendent of the desired Government
A 110fFOOT SUB CHASER IS USED AS TRAINING SHIP
The passing grade of the Academy is 7OZ. Final examinations are given by the Academy
in all subjects and the grades obtained in these final examinations count 40729 in computing the
final averages for the year.
A report covering each cadet's marks in academic subjects, drills, conduct and extracurricular
activities is mailed to the parent at the end of each academic month and semester.
CERTIFICATION TO COLLEGE
A minimum grade of SOQH is required for certification to college. If a cadet fails to attain
this grade in any subject and yet has a passing grade of at least 7062 in that subject, he will be
permitted to take a College Board examination and, provided he passes the examination with a
minimum of 7OW1, will be certified in that particular subject.
REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION
Two types of awards are made upon completion of the course: The Diploma and the Cer'
tificate of Completion.
In order to obtain the Academy Diploma, a cadet must have passed a minimum of 15 units
of the College Entrance Board's examinations with a grade of at least OOZD. A diploma "With
Distinction" is granted those cadets who have passed 17 units of College Entrance Board exam'
inations with a grade of not less than 70W in each examination or fifteen units with grades of not
less than 8070. '
Cadets who give evidence of mental ability and seriousness of purpose by maintaining an
average of 8095 in each of their Academy subjects are urged to prepare for the College Board
examinations. Cadets who attain this average should experience little difliculty in passing the
Board examinations and by so doing become eligible for the Academy diploma.
Cadets who have successfully met the mental requirements for entrance to the U. S. Naval
Academy, the U. S. Military Academy, or the U. S. Coast Guard Academy will be granted the
diploma, provided that they have spent at least one academic year at the Admiral Farragut
Academy and present satisfactory evidence of having completed a minimum of 15 units of
The Certincate of Completion is granted to cadets who present satisfactory evidence of
having attained passing grades in not less than 15 units of studies during their high school course.
A cadet must have been in attendance at least one year at the Academy before becoming
eligible for either the Diploma or the Certificate of Completion.
COLLEGE BOARD EXAMINATIONS
While the College Entrance Board examinations are conducted at the Academy, the school
has nothing to do with the preparation of the examination questions or with the correction of the
cadets' papers. All such matters are under the control of the Board which assigns a neutral proc'
tor to the Academy to supervise the examinations.
The fee of 5510.00 must be paid to the College Entrance Examination Board by the cadet
each year that he takes any Board examinations.
The designation "academic subjectsv is restricted to the following:

Passing prescribed swimming tests are prerequisite to operating any of the school watercraft.
Aside from participation in all forms of sport, every cadet is required to pass strength tests
in ten physical activities before the yearly grade of satisfactory in physical efficiency is granted.
BACCALAUREATE SERVICES IN GYMNASIUM
THE CADET BAND
Cadets are encouraged to join and learn to participate in the activities of the Choral Club,
the declamation contests, dramatics and the Academy paper, The Capstan. Each of these activities
is carefully developed and supervised by a faculty officer.
BAND AND ORCHESTRA
Among the other extra-curricular activities of the Academy are the band and orchestra
which offer a splendid training in these fields of music. Any cadet who plays a suitable instru-
ment is eligible to become a member of these organizations.
The band furnishes music for cadet ceremonies and plays Sunday concerts for the pleasure of
the Corps, its relatives and friends. During the past year, trips were made to play at functions in
nearby communities, notably at Atlantic City, where several broadcasts were made.
The orchestra plays for the cadet hops and provides entertainment at the informal Saturday
night gatherings of the Staff and Corps.
Boys who like music will find these organizations a constant source of pleasure and interest.
All cadets are required to attend all recitations, drills, lectures, recreational activities and
excursions which the Corps attends in a body. Absence from any activity is permitted only upon
the authorization of the Medical Officer.
Cadets are permitted no leave of absence other than the leave periods listed in the Academy
Calendar. Special leaves of absence are granted only in the case of death or serious illness in the
immediate family of the cadet or special medical or dental requirements of the cadet as approved by
the Medical Oflicer and requested by the parents. General vveekfend leaves of absence to the
number of three or four for the year are permitted upon the written request of a cadet's parent
for the purpose of medical or dental attention, government academy appointments or suchother
business as requires the cadet's presence at home. '
It is assumed that cadets come to the Academy for a serious purpose and that they will
cheerfully conform to such regulations as may be issued from time to time. Cadets are expected
to behave with decorum and to pay due respect to the Academy officers. Conduct inconsistent
with general good order and discipline, or persistent neglect of academic work, or obvious inaptif
tude may cause dismissal. Improper conduct such as dishonesty, immorality or theft renders the
offender liable to immediate expulsion.
The Admiral Farragut Academy extends a cordial Welcome to all visitors whenever they come.
Parents of boys approaching the preparatory school age are urged to visit the Academy and to
inspect closely the facilities, methods and results. Parents of cadets are urged to limit their visits
to such times as the cadets are not busy, preferably Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
The Academy is undenominational and regulates the religious training along basic ethical
lines rather than in conformity with any set creed. Bible instruction is voluntary, church
attendance on Sundays is compulsory. Cadets are encouraged to attend the churches of their
denominations located in Pine Beach, Beachwood or Toms River.

THE MERCHANT MARINE COURSE
This is a two-year course and is designed to thoroughly acquaint the cadet with the technical
knowledge essential to a successful career in the merchant service. The course encompasses more
than the basic requirements of the third mate's examination. Each phase of the seagoing profes-
sion is carefully entered into. The groundwork of study is intended to facilitate the compref
hension of duty at sea, and the successive examinations required of Merchant Marine officers by
the U. S. Steamboat Inspection Service.
To be eligible to take this course cadets must have successfully completed three years of
mathematics fElementary and Intermediate Algebra, and Plane Geometryj.
SEAMANSHIP: This course embraces all branches of modern seamanship, the elements of
ship construction and ship handling, duties of a seaman, cargo handling, piloting, meteorological
data and rudimentary maritime law. The rules of the road and the knowledge of a watch ofHcer's
duties must be thoroughly mastered by each cadet.

DEPARTMENT CE HISTORY
MESSRS. WOLCOTT, PoLLocK
The courses in history are planned to introduce the student to those aspects of the past that
will enable him better to comprehend the real problems of the political and economic nature of
contemporary life. Characters and events are grouped about certain ideas which have shaped the
destinies of men and of nations. An effort is made to discover the origin of these ideas and to
trace their influence as long as they have persisted. Though it is the past that is explored, the
point of view is that of the present.
Each course is built upon the work outlined in a recognized textbook. In addition, supple'
mentary readings are assigned in source books, in biographies, and in the works of outstanding
authorities. Reports and essays are submitted by all students. Map exercises and objective tests
are employed. Outlines and notebooks are kept for purposes of rapid review.
The requirements of the College Entrance Examination Board and of the U. S. Military
Academy and the U. S. Naval Academy are carefully observed.
The principal events and important contributions from the earliest days of recorded history
to the time of Charlemagne are here considered. The work of the first term ends with the study
of the Hellenistic world after Alexander. The second term is devoted to the study of the
Republic and Empire of Rome.

PHYSICAL TRAINING AND ATHLETICS
This department is administered jointly by the Commandant, Medical Oiiicer, and the Direcf
tor of Physical Training and Athletics. The mission of the department is threefold and consists of:
fa, The prescription and fulfillment of remedial training necessary to correct the individual
posture and physical setfup.
fbj The building up of bodily vigor and endurance.
fcj The developing of proficiency in sports.
Upon entrance the cadet is subjected to a thorough medical and physical examination. The com'
mon ailments such as enlarged tonsils, adenoids, eye defects, incipient sinusitis, albuminuria,
defective posture, etc., are here discovered and immediate measures prescribed for their correction.
One hour daily is devoted to physical training and athletic participation. The latter, of
course, is apart from the time allotted for recreational athletics during which the cadet may par'
ticipate in any sport of his liking.
The Admiral Farragut Academy especially sponsors intramural sports, both land and water,
in which all cadets have an opportunity to compete.
Athletic equipment will be supplied to varsity teams only.
OUR NEW AND MODERN GYMNASIUM BUILDING
A CLASS IN CALISTHENICS
THE JUNIOR SCHOOL
The advantages of naval training having been proved by the success of the Admiral Farragut
Academy, it has been considered logical to make these advantages available to younger boys be'
tween the ages of ten and fifteen. The type of education which a young boy receives during this
formative period in his life is of paramount importance and deserves the parents' most careful
For these reasons, the Admiral Farragut Academy has organized a junior School department
which, although an integral part of the Senior School, forms a separate group with its own class
rooms, its own naval organization, its own athletics and boats. Boys in the Junior School are
quartered by themselves in a wing of the dormitory and lead their own existence quite apart from
the older cadets.
The Director of the junior School is a specialist in the training and education of prefadolesf
cent youth and he is assisted by a staff of special officers who closely supervise every phase of the
boys' activities. In order to make the change from home to school as natural and as comfortable
as possible, every effort is made to make boys feel "at home." Their instructors are ever ready to
act as parents in advising youngsters concerning little intimate details which present themselves
daily. Being constantly in contact with other boys their own age, gives to each youngster a spirit
of selffreliance and a community consciousness which will be of untold value to him in his later life.
We find that many boys entering our Senior School are not well prepared to meet our stand-
ards, but when a boy finishes our junior School he is so imbued with the spirit of Farragut
Academy, with its methods and ideals, that he is able to enter the Senior School as a natural
course. There is no abrupt change, no break, and he is fully prepared to carry on and to do his
best work from the very beginning.
The junior School includes the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades. The course of study,
which gives a thorough preparation in the grammar school branches, extends over a period of
four years but boys with proper preparation are admitted at any time into any one of the grades.

This training takes note of the natural liking of youth for activities that require skill, pre-
cision and speed. The Faculty feels that it will produce gratifying results in the development
of upright bearing, sound physique, reliable character, and initiative in the cadet which academic
training alone is not designed to cover. Interest in sailing, rowing and water sports is a highly

Parents are urged to sew woven name tabs in all articles of wearing apparel. Athletic

THE CADETS' STORE AND CANTEEN
The cadets' store is located in the barracks and maintains a supply of everyday necessities for
the use of the cadets. Aside from his toilet articles, the cadet should have little occasion to make
other purchases after his admission to the Academy. For the convenience of parents who wish to
avoid shopping for the articles which cadets must bring from home, the Academy store maintains a
small supply of these and sells them at the standard retail prices.
Cadets are responsible for all articles of uniform and equipment furnished them by the Acad'
emy and all personal effects brought from home. Such articles if lost, defaced, damaged beyond
repair or worn out will be replaced immediately and the cost charged to the cadet's account.
Luggage, musical instruments and all standard manufactured articles are procurable by the
POCKET MONEY ALLOWANCE
The privilege of pocket money allowance is granted cadets of the various classes in accord'
ance with the following schedule:
First Class ........... 52.00 per week Third Class .......... 351.50 per week
Second Class ......... 531.75 per week Fourth Class ......... 51.00 per week
Juniors ............. S .75 per week
The attention of parents is directed to the importance which the Admiral Farragut Acad'
emy attaches to the matter of a cadet's spending allowance. Habits of thrift, judicious spending,
and a general appreciation of the value of money can be learned more easily by a youth whose
allowance is limited to the extent that he must think before spending.
In order to eliminate the possible loss of money on the part of cadets, the Academy requests
that the pocket money allowance be deposited with the Finance Oflicer. He will issue periodically
to the cadet the amount of the allowance schedule.

A FEW TESTIMONIALS
Admiral Farragut Academy,
Toms River, N.
Your circular letter of january 16th received.
Mrs. Van Winkle and I are well pleased with your school, and the work our son Robert
is doing, and feel that we have sent him to one of the best schools in the country. Robert also
seems to be very proud of his school. He is always giving us the finest kind of reports. We
have had no complaint from him regarding the entire school. He says the meals are Hne, and
the instructors and teachers excellent.
We will recommend your school very highly to anyone interested in the same."
STERLING VAN WINKLE.
Admiral Farragut Academy,
Toms River, N.
I have just been notified that my son Richard, now a high school senior at your academy,
will, upon his graduation in june, be admitted to the School of Engineering, Carnegie Institute
of Technology here, without any examination. This proves my good judgment in sending my boy
to your academy last fall.
The Admiral Farragut Academy should enjoy noteworthy advantages through having as its
founders-broadminded, reverend officers and teachers, liberal in religious views-a faculty of
recognized standing. Out of their selffsacriiicing efforts has grown the fine spirit of service,
democracy and comradeship which now pervades the life at your academy.
I shall always feel grateful to your institution for that which you have given to my boy.
GILBERT C. CLOONAN.
Admiral Farragut Academy,
Toms River, N. I.
"Dear Admiral Robison:
This may be the moment for me to express the enthusiasm of Mrs. Frazee and myself for
the opportunities that are offered by the Academy toward the education and development of
youth. The benehts derived from such a service as yours should, if possible, be brought to the
attention of the parents."
FRANK V. FRAZEE.
Admiral Farragut Academy,
Toms River, N.
All who have associated with Fred during the Christmas holidays have remarked about
what a 'different' boy he is, physically, mentally, gentlemanly, and in selffcontrol. We assure
them all that the 'difference' is due to Admiral Farragut Academy and the officers and instrucf
tors and associations with that fine bunch of students, have made this transformation in our boy.
He has had a fine time these three weeks at home, but he is looking forward with a great deal
of pleasure to his return to 'Admiral Farragut'."
