We invite all members of the FA community to join us. Please click HERE to sign up. Volunteers can sign up for the first shift (8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.), the second shift (10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.), or can work both shifts.

Light refreshments will be served during service hours. We will follow up with volunteers in the week preceding the event to provide more specifics on work responsibilities.

Souper Bowl Food Collection - ALL WEEK

Frederica Academy is sponsoring its annual Souper Bowl Food Collection Drive  next week in celebration of Super Bowl 52. Boxes for the Philadelphia Eagles  and New England Patriots will be stationed on Happy Hall (Lower School) and in Corn Hall starting on Monday, January 29. Students and teachers can vote for who they predict or want to win the big game by putting canned food donations in the desired team box. Each division will determine the local agency who will be the beneficiary of their collected canned goods.

Region Science Bowl Champions

The Frederica Academy 11th and 12th grade Science Bowl Team won the Regional Science Bowl competition at Armstrong Atlantic State University on Saturday.

Teams competed from both public and private schools in the southeast region of Georgia. In the competition, two teams battle as questions are asked and players buzz in to answer. If they get a question correct, they are given a tougher bonus question in which the team can confer. The 11th and 12th grade team members were captain George Poulakis, Ryan McHugh, John Mitchell Brock, and Constance Sullivan. They went 7-0 for the day, defeating every other team at the competition.

The 9th and 10th grade team also competed for Frederica. Those team members were captain Britton Sullivan, Dylan McHugh, Austin Mitchell, William Brock, and Garrett Squire. They went 3-3-1 in their matches finishing in fourth place overall, which is an excellent outcome for such a young team.

The 11th and 12th grade team will continue on to the state competition which will be held at Armstrong on Saturday, February 24th.
